Salsa Sloppy Joes

I ended up liking these way more than I ever thought I would.  They were probably the easiest sloppy joe I have ever made.  I loved that besides salt and pepper, I didn't have to add any spices or chop up any onions or peppers, because, thanks to the salsa, it is already in there.  

I used my favorite, go-to, Homemade Salsa that I had already made to use in another dish and I added that to the hamburger along with a little brown sugar and canned tomato soup.  Don't let the canned tomato soup scare you away.  It doesn't end up tasting like you added tomato soup, it just adds a little tomato flavor that all sloppy joes have and it helps it be thick and saucy.  I served these with a side of Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries and I loved it all.  If your family enjoys sloppy joes - I bet they will love this version! Try it. 

Salsa Sloppy Joes
1 Lb. ground turkey or ground beef
salt and pepper
1 c. salsa (store-bought or homemade)
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed tomato soup
1 1/2 Tbl. brown sugar
hamburger buns

Brown meat in a skillet over medium heat; season with salt and pepper.  Add the salsa, condensed soup and brown sugar.  Stir well to combine.  Simmer for 10 minutes.  Serve on hamburger buns.

Jenn's Notes: These were so good.  I used ground beef and homemade salsa and they were done in no time!
