Sloppy Buffalo Joes

This is Rachael Ray's spicy version of sloppy Joes. My sister-in-law made this for dinner the other night and it was delicious!

2 tbsp of olive oil
2 pounds of ground chicken or ground turkey
1 carrot, peeled chopped or grated
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 yellow onion chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
Salt & pepper
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2tbsp Worcestershire sauce
¼ to 1/3 cup of hot sauce
*1 cup of tomato sauce
*1 cup of chicken stock
8 burger rolls
1 cup blue cheese crumbles
2 large dill pickles, chopped

In a mixing bowl combine vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and tomato sauce and set aside. Heat a large skillet with olive oil in medium heat. Add turkey and cook for about 5-6 mins or until turkey is fully cooked. Add carrots, celery, onions and garlic, season with salt and pepper and cook for 7-8 minutes. Pour into the pan the vinegar/sauce mixture and stir to combine. Simmer for a few more minutes. Pile sloppy buffalo filling onto buns and top with cheese and chopped pickles.

*The sloppy filling was a bit watery. So I would add ½ cup chicken stock or replace the tomato sauce for tomato paste to make the filling less watery. Hope you guys like it!

We made these the other night and LOVED them! I actually don't usually like sloppy joes, so I was very impressed with this recipe. I love the veggies and the spicy kick.
