I’m going to need for you to not judge this post by its name.
Yes, these sloppy joes are a little slutty. I honestly wanted to call them Sloppy Whores.
But I refrained. As much as I thought it suited them, it just didn’t quite seem right.
See, they’re trashy in a good way. Well, they are kinda traditional; the sloppy joe beef mixture is spicy and I added white shoepeg corn, white queso cheese, jalapenos and tomatoes on top.
Have y’all noticed that I seem to have an affinity for making messy ass burgers? I guess I need to reign that in. Oh, wait. No I definitely don’t.
Speaking of messy, I had my first food truck meal yesterday. Birmingham has several, but I haven’t had the opportunity to try them until yesterday when three of them parked in front of the hospital while I was at work, which was so convenient, and Holy Lord, delicious.
I had a chicken soft taco from Cantina On Wheels. It had cilantro mayo and a slaw that was amazing. I spent every single bite trying to figure out what was in it so I could recreate it. I’m counting the days until they come back.
Anyway, back to the Trashy Joe – The shoepeg corn adds such a fun crunch, not to mention the jalapenos. I actually took the bun off a couple of times to dip tortilla chips in all the sloppiness.
They’re a hot mess.
I love beautiful messes. Even if they aren’t that pretty, they taste damn good.
Here you go, trash it up-
