Southwestern Sloppy Joes

I was surprised at how good these were! Plus, if I hadn’t opted for oven baked fries as the side, dinner would have been ready in 15 minutes! You really should try them. And don’t forget the coleslaw on top! They’re a nice change from traditional sloppy joes made with ground beef and a bottle of chili sauce.

1/3 c. mayonnaise
3 T. honey
2 T. fresh lime juice
Salt & cayenne to taste
4 c. coleslaw mix
2 T. chopped fresh cilantro
1 lb. ground turkey breast
1/2 c. onion, minced
1/2 c. ketchup
1/3 c. frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 can diced green chiles (4.5 oz)
1 T. brown sugar
2 t. prepared yellow mustard
1 t. ground cumin
Salt to taste
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted

Whisk mayonnaise, honey, lime juice, salt and cayenne together. Toss with coleslaw mix and cilantro; chill.

Saute turkey and onion in oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in ketchup, corn, green chiles, brown sugar, mustard, cumin and salt; simmer 5 minutes. Spoon into each of the 4 bottom buns. To serve, spoon slaw onto each sandwich and top with a toasted top bun.
