Sloppy Chicken "Chorizos"

The all-American Sloppy Joe heads South of the border in this blended fusion. I chose to top mine with Mexican crema (sour cream) and slices of avocado.

  • 1 pound ground chicken

  • 1 (9 ounce) package ground chorizo sausage

  • ½ cup chopped yellow onion

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup ketchup

  • ¾ cup beef broth (Optional)

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons chipotle chile powder

  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard powder

  • ½ teaspoon hot sauce (Optional)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon beef broth, or more as needed (Optional)

  • 6 pretzel rolls, split and toasted


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground chicken and chorizo sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Return meat to the skillet; add onion and butter. Cook and stir until onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic; saute for 30 seconds.

  2. Stir ketchup, broth, brown sugar, chile powder, mustard powder, hot sauce, salt, and pepper into the skillet until well combined; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 to 20 minutes. Add broth, 1 tablespoon at a time, if mixture looks dry. Serve on toasted pretzel rolls.
