Buffalo Joe's!

David & I tried a great new recipe this past weekend. It was quick, easy, healthy and yummy too! Have I convinced you to try it yet?!
This recipe is the healthy alternative to buffalo wings and sloppy joe's combined!

2# of ground chicken or turkey
2 medium carrot sicks, grated
2-3 celery hearts
2-3 garlic cloves
3 Tbls. Brown Sugar
3 Tbls. Vinegar, any kind
1 Tbls. Worchshire Sauce
1/4-1/3 C. hot sauce
1 C. chix stock
1 C. tomato sauce
Buns or bread
Salt & pepper

  1. Brown 2# of ground chicken or turkey (use EVOO to help get the brown color)
  2. Add carrots, celery & garlic
  3. Mix the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl on the side: brown sugar, vinegar, worchshire, hot sauce (the more you use the more HOT it'll be), chix stock, tomato sauce & salt & pepper to taste
  4. Add sauce to the meat until warm
  5. Serve on a bun like a sloppy joe!
  6. We added a little bit of Ranch dressing on the joe, but you could add blue cheese crumbles instead!
Let us know if you try it and how much you like it!

ooh. sounds like a fun & yummy meal! I am pretty stuck on Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce so this is great alternative & a gender friendly healthy meal (seems hard to find healthy things that guys like too)!
