The best of both worlds – sloppy joes and tacos – meet in this healthy dinner that’s soon to be a family favorite.
Oh, I have a good one for you today.
OK, so, it’s not any kind of super creative, ingenious recipe but man is it gooooood. As in Sloppy Joes and Tacos good.
When I made these Tomato Soup Sloppy Joes back in January, it literally had been decades since I had them. And for no real reason. I ate them plenty growing up. They just never made it into my cooking routine out of college nor into married life as I tend to cook less meat now.
But since “rediscovering” Sloppy Joes earlier this year (and introducing them to my daughter,) I have made them more frequently and even have served them over corn chips as nachos, which is how I prefer them.
Until this recipe.

Currently, my 8 year old is loving the crunchy hard shell tacos since we’ve discovered the Trader Joe’s brand so that was the catalyst to this Sloppy Joe Taco recipe. I took elements of these Loaded Veggie Nachos and morphed them with the Tomato Soup Sloppy Joes recipe.
Result? Some darn delicious and healthier tacos that include a decent serving of vegetables – whoot!
Recipe note #1: To make these vegetarian, swap in about 2 pounds of minced mushrooms (cooked the same way in the Loaded Veggie Nacho recipe and then season them with the tomato soup sloppy joe sauce) for the 1 pound of ground meat/turkey.
Recipe note #2: Serve these as taco salads by making these super easy, baked taco shells.
