Taco Sloppy Joes – homemade sloppy Joes just got a Mexican makeover! Seasoned with taco seasoning, chilies and topped with cheese make them perfect for any night of the week!
Weeknights are busy, and I am always looking for easy dinner recipes. I want dinner that I can get on the table in about 20 minutes. And I want something that my whole family will eat without complaints. I have pretty high expectations. But that is a good thing, because then I can share my dinner ideas with you! Don’t miss some of my favorite Quick Dinner Ideas.
When I was growing up, we always had homemade sloppy Joes. I still make the same recipe my mom used to make today. But today my favorite sloppy Joes are getting a Mexican makeover. Because anything with a Mexican spin is a hit at my house.
Easy weeknight dinners are kind of my thing. They are about the only way that I can get through the week. Things like Crunchy Southwestern Chicken Wraps that you can make in 15 minutes, or even make ahead of time are necessary some weeks. Even on busy nights, I still want to have dinner as a family around the table. So these Taco Sloppy Joes are not only delicious, but ready in minutes.

Got lots of ground beef? This Taco Rice is a must for a quick and easy dinner.
How To Make Taco Sloppy Joes
- Start by browning the ground beef and onions together until the meat is cooked and the onions are soft. If you have any grease in the pan, drain it away.
- Then mix in the garlic and let it cook for about 1 minute, just until you can start to smell it.
- Stir in the corn and taco seasoning until everything is well coated.
- Pour in the tomatoes and tomato sauce and let it simmer for a few minutes. Season with a little salt and pepper to taste and then serve.
My family tops normal sloppy Joes with potato chips, so for these taco sloppy Joes I served them with Fritos, so they could still have that crunch. They loved it!
This recipe only calls for corn kernels, but you could also add black beans if you wanted to bulk it up a little bit more.
