Healthy Sloppy Joes


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey (at least 93% lean)
  • One 15.5 oz can low sodium or salt free black beans, drained and rinsed
  • One 14.5 oz can no salt added diced tomatoes
  • ¼ cup no salt added tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • ½ teaspoon stevia (can use brown sugar variety)



Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.  When oil is shimmering, add the onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook until onions are translucent, about 4 minutes.

Add turkey and cook until meat is no longer pink, about 6 minutes (break apart as cooking into small pieces).  Add in the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.

Lower heat to medium or medium low and simmer, covered until the flavors combine, about 15 minutes.
