Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a very large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, sweet pepper, corn, garlic, and jalapeño pepper. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in chicken or turkey, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes more or until chicken or turkey is no longer pink. Stir in ketchup and Worcestershire sauce; heat through.

  • Divide mixture among rolls. If desired, top with pickle slices.


Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

This was very good. We had two pounds of turkey and two whole onions made a lot of filling. We anticipate using this filling for sloppy joes maybe nachos tacos burritos really a whole lot of different possibilities but more mexican then sloppy joes. If I did it over I might omit the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce to go the mexican route. Good stuff though. Read More
