Burger night just got way better! These Mini Mexican Vegan Sloppy Joes make for a hearty, wholesome, flavorful dinner that’ll satisfy everyone at the table. In partnership with my friends at Sweet Earth Enlightened Foods. ❤️
I can’t remember the last time I had sloppy Joes. To be honest, I never really liked them because I hated BBQ sauce, and everyone smothers sloppy Joes in sweet BBQ sauce. Not my thing.
Thankfully I came around and now enjoy BBQ sauce (I love mine homemade!), but who wants to make regular old sloppy Joes when you can give them a MEXICAN spin?! Cue the endless chips and guac and margaritas! 🍹
For a long time, sandwiches and burgers were a fear food. TWO pieces of thick bread with lots of things stuffed in between??? They made me really anxious, and I hardly ever let myself have a real sandwich. Ah, it makes me sad just thinking about it.
But wait! There’s a happy ending! I’m at a place where I totally allow myself to have a sandwich or *vegan* burger when I want one. Do I still feel anxious sometimes? Yeah. But I realized just how dang satisfying sandwiches are. They’re a perfect balance of carbs, fat, and protein, with some veggies on the side. Hooray for nourishing foods!
Okay, let’s celebrate food freedom with some Mexican-inspired vegan sloppy Joes. 👏🏼
