step-by-step directions
  •  

  • To make Pico De Gallo, mix tomatoes, jalapeños, red onion, cilantro, juice of 2 limes, and salt & pepper together.
  • To make the Sloppy Joes place a skillet over medium high heat and let it get hot for about a minute.
  • Add the oil and spread it so it covers the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the ground round and cook, breaking up the meat with the back of a spoon, until all the pink is gone (about 15 minutes).
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir slowly to combine.
  • When the liquid starts to simmer, reduce the heat to low, partially cover, and simmer for 45 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep the bottom from scorching.
  • Open the roll or arrange the white bread on a plate. Spoon the meat mixture over it and serve.
