Pin #27: Tex Mex Sloppy Joe Quesadillas

Tex Mex Sloppy Joes

Tex Mex Sloppy Joes from The Nifty Foodie.

Okay, it’s been a couple of weeks since I reviewed a pin. SLACKING, I know. For what it’s worth, I have been trying out pins; however, I’ve been fumbling through the ill-effects of our little guy’s 8 month infant sleep regression + aggressive teething schedule (seriously, 4 teeth in 2 weeks, plus working on another 2 now). All that has made me a little groggy and often incoherent.

But never fear! There’s light at the end of this little guy’s aversion to sleeping and the last two nights I’ve gotten 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep so I’m back at it! And what better way to start than with schlop, schlop, schloppy joes?

So a while back I pinned these Tex Mex Sloppy Joe Quesadillas. I like Tex Mex. I like Sloppy Joes. I like Quesadillas. That’s a win all around! And overall these were an easy, tasty meal.

However, when we whipped these up a few weeks ago, we didn’t properly read the directions from The Nifty Foodie. Had we done that, I bet they would’ve turned out as pretty as the ones in the picture. But we didn’t.  And they lived up to the SLOPPY part of the name. TIP: Unless you have a huge cooktop and an even bigger spatula for flipping, be sure to use taco-sized tortillas for this recipe. We used burrito sized tortillas and the flipping process turned into a sloppy joe mess.

The good news is, the sloppy mess didn’t deter me from devouring every tex-mex’y morsel. Or from making them again the next night. What can I say, I’m a glutton for sloppy joe madness.
