Chef John's Hot Sloppy Joe Dip

Rated as 4.53 out of 5 Stars

"For me this checks all the boxes for a hot party dip. It's relatively cheap and easy to make, but maybe more importantly, it's great hot, warm, or room temp. And it's also incredibly versatile."

Directions

  1. Place ground beef, bell pepper, onion, garlic, flour, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper in a heavy pot.
  2. Place pot over medium-high heat. Break up and stir mixture as it heats. Cook and stir until most of the moisture has evaporated and mixture is crumbly and begins to brown, about 15 minutes. Stir in chicken broth, ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well and bring mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thick, about 45 minutes.
  3. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  4. Transfer mixture to oven-proof sauce pan. Top with 1/2 of the shredded cheese. Poke cheese down into the dip with a fork, stirring lightly. Top with remaining cheese.
  5. Place pan under broiler; broil until cheese is browned, and mixture is hot and bubbly, about 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Chef's Notes:
  • You can substitute 2 cups water for the 2 cups chicken broth.
  • You can finish this dip in a hot oven (425 degrees F (220 degrees C)) instead of under the broiler. And you don't have to present this as a baked dip. You can just leave it on the stove, on low, for guests to dip into.
  • This dip is perfect served with baguette slices.

I felt it was missing some taste (tang). I am not an avid cook but maybe adding some apple cider vinegar probably would have done the trick.

I wasn't sure if this (or any other Manwich) recipe would be worth the trouble involved in hunting & gathering, chopping & cooking since the old reliable canned sauce from Hunts is a classic exa...

THis was EXCELLENT ! I changed the addition of chicken broth to beef..... I served with toasted sliced baguettes :) yummy

This dip was really good! Chef John did it again! I would never have thought to turn sloppy joes into a dip. Hubby is not a fan of sweet stuff so I knew I needed to cut back a bit on the brow...

It was just ok, too sweet.

I used 2 heaping Tablespoons of brown sugar so the green peppers were not too overwhelming.

very very good i will make it again

I used ground chuck with this, and it was just way too fatty, even with adding two additional tablespoons of flour to soak up the grease from the beef. I skimmed off as much as I could from the...
