Sloppy Joes (Betsy Robertson)
This is a crockpot recipe, but could be done on the stove top if necessary.
Even with the jalapenos and hot sauce, it does not turn out too spicy.

1 Tbs. oil
2 med. onions chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs. chili powder
2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. salt
1 small can tomato sauce, about 1 cup
1/2 cup ketchup
2-3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp hot sauce
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 cup grated cheddar or jack cheese (optional)
Brown the meat in a skillet, drain and place meat in crockpot.
In same skillet, heat oil and saute onions, jalapeno, and garlic until softened.
Add chili powder, oregano and salt. Cook for about 1 min.
