Sloppy Jose’s

Total Time: 20 Minutes

Makes: 5 Servings

You Need:

  • 1pkg of cornbread mix (I used a box of Martha White Sweet Yellow Cornbread. Make sure you also pick up the ingredients needed to make the cornbread. In my case I needed milk and eggs.)
  • 1lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 chopped celery rib
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (This is optional. I left it out because it’s very spicy.)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/4 cups salsa
  • 2 tbsp chili sauce
  • 2/3 cup Mexican shredded cheese
  • Sour Cream


To Make It:

  • Prepare and bake the cornbread according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, red pepper, onion, and celery over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  • Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, and chipotle pepper (if you are using it). Cook for 1 minute.
  • Stir in salsa and chili sauce. Simmer for 3-5 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly.
  • Cut cornbread in to squares. Cut each square in half and top the halves with beef mixture and 2 tablespoons of cheese. Serve with a dollop of sour cream.


I don’t usually serve it with any side dishes because it is very filling as it is but if you wanted to you could serve it with a side of Mexican rice or Fiesta Herbed Corn.
