Sloppy Joe Recipe with Beanitos

I’ve got a great sloppy joe recipe for you using Beanitos as a fortifier and thickening agent.  Besides blogging here, I also produce recipes for Recipe Lion.  They’re currently running a blogger recipe contest using Beanitos products, and I’m pretty sure this will be my submission.  The recipes aren’t due until next Friday so I’m tinkering with a few other ideas but this will likely be the one.

These were very tasty.  Jeremy really liked the sandwiches.   I hope you do too! Let me know what you think if you make them.

Sloppy Joe Recipe with Beanitos

A rich tasty sloppy joe recipe is fueled by Beanitos chips. Try it today!


Sloppy Joe Filling:

  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon chopped canned chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1 can red enchilada sauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 of a 6 ounce bag of Beanitos chips (pinto bean & flax-seed variety)

For Sandwiches: 

  • 5 hamburger buns
  • Sour cream, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (preferably sharp)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 ºF.
  2. In a medium-sized pot, heat the olive oil over medium high heat until it is warm when you hover your hand over it.
  3. Add the onions and kosher salt.  Stir well.
  4. Cook about 5 minutes, until the onions begin to get translucent.
  5. Add the ground beef and stir well making sure to break up the ground meat completely.  It should take about 3-5 minutes for the ground beef to brown, depending on how high your heat is.
  6. Once the beef is all brown, drain off any excessive fat.  If you’re using lean ground beef, there really shouldn’t be much, if any.
  7. Next add in the chipotles, enchilada sauce and the four spices. Mix very well.
  8. Bring up to a boil – should take another 3 minutes or so – then remove from heat. Mix in the Beanitos chips. The chips will break up but that is fine.  In the end, they will be dissolved into the sloppy joe mixture.
  9. Pour this mixture into a corning ware dish or something comparable.
  10. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.
  11. When the dish is done, let it set for 10 minutes so that the dish can thicken up more.
  12. While this is waiting, toast your buns and dress them with sour cream, green onion and shredded cheese.
  13. Once the sloppy joe mixture is ready, spoon it on the bun and eat!
