This recipe for homemade sloppy Joes is quick and uses healthier ingredients than the traditional version.

Ingredients

(Serves 6)
  • 1 pound ground beef (90 percent lean)
  • 1 large green bell pepper, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cans (10.75 ounces each) reduced-sodium tomato soup (not diluted)
  • 6 whole-wheat hamburger buns

Directions

In a nonstick frying pan, cook the ground beef, pepper and onion until the meat is browned and the vegetables are tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain well and return the mixture to the frying pan. Add the tomato soup to the ground beef mixture and stir well. Simmer for at least 10 minutes.

To serve, place 2/3 cup of the meat mixture on each bun. Serve immediately.
