Sloppy or Snobby Joes

The hubby loves Sloppy Joe's modifying the Heinz recipe.


1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped red pepper
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup Heinz® Tomato Ketchup 
1/2 can diced tomatoes
2 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. Heinz® Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 TBSP chili powder
8 sandwich buns

But our son and i love this Snobby Joe recipe with modifications on a gluten free bun. The link is at the bottom.
1 cup uncooked  red, black or green lentils
3 cups water 
1 large sweet onion, diced small
1 red pepper, diced small
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tablespoons chili powder (we use 3 tsp)
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 a can of diced tomatoes
1/4 cup tomato paste
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon mustard powder

(we added celery, diced, 1 cup)
4 to 6 kaiser rolls or sesame buns (optional – for serving)
Saute the onion and pepper in water for about 7 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and saute a minute more.  Add the  lentils, 3 cups of water, the chili powder, oregano and salt and mix. Add the tomatoes and tomato paste. Cook until the lentils are soft.
Add the maple syrup and mustard and heat through. Turn the heat off and let sit for about 10 minutes, so that the flavors can meld, or go ahead and eat immediately if you can’t wait.
