Salsa Sloppy Joes

I've always been kind of "meh" when it comes to Sloppy Joes. They have never been one of my favorites but my husband absolutely loves them. I'm always looking for new ways to prepare them and these Salsa Sloppy Joe's made a quick and easy meal. I really enjoyed them. (Which says a lot from a non sloppy joe eater) I melted cheddar jack cheese over them and a dollop of sour cream. They were a hit with the hubster and my 2 year old as well.

Salsa Sloppy Joes
Serves 4
Cal 398, Carbs 37g  Fat 10.5 Fiber 4.2g Protein 33.5

16 oz. package extra lean ground beef (I used 96/4)
1 tbsp. taco seasoning
3/4 cup tomato sauce
1 jar salsa (I used Pace Chunky Salsa)
4 slices reduced fat cheddar/jack cheese
4 Hamburger Buns (I used Sara Lee Whole Grain White)
Light Sour Cream (Optional)

In a large saucepan brown ground beef. Drain and add in your remaining ingredients. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes or you can transfer your mixture to a crock pot and let simmer on low until you are ready to eat. (That is what I did)

Spoon mixture onto buns and top with a slice of cheddar jack cheese and a dollop of sour cream. (optional) Enjoy!
