Sloppy Joe Sandwich with Turkey Chilli con Carne

This is one of our favourite comfort foods ever! Fresh bread, spicy mince, cool cream, melted cheese and crunchy veggies.

Every time we cook chilli con carne I hide away a bit for our sloppy Joe sandwiches the following day.


  • bread roll (halved and toasted, I used wholemeal one)
  • slice of cheese (I used Red Leicester)
  • few slices of cucumber, bell pepper and onion
  • about 3 tbs leftover chilli con carne (warmed up)
  • about 1 tbs crème fraiche or soured cream
