2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the sloppy joe filling

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough shallots to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].
  • Rinse the black beans. 

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shallots and mild green chiles, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the sloppy joe sauce base, beans, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are heated through and the sauce is thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. 

If you prefer a saucier filling, stir in more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to reach the desired consistency. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the filling is cooking, prepare the coleslaw and buns. 


Make the coleslaw

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.

In a large bowl, stir together the coleslaw dressing base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the cabbage, carrots, and cilantro and toss to combine; season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Toast the buns

In a large frying pan, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven.


Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on individual plates. Top each with the sloppy joe filling and some of the coleslaw. Close with the bun tops. Serve the remaining coleslaw on the side.
