This is a alternative to the Sloppy Joe. I am always trying to find ways to use ground turkey or chicken as my girlfriend does not eat Beef, and I love a Sloppy Joe, so I thought I would make her one with some ground turkey, my way! These came out Awesome! Enjoy! This also makes a nice topping for turkey/chicken hot dogs, or on top of a dish of pasta. Also you can eat a bowl of it on it's own like a chili! Either way you have it, you are sure to love it!
