Sloppy Joes, spicy

Spicy Sloppy Joes

1 C chopped onion
1 C finely chopped diced celery (2 large stalks)
1 C finely diced green bell pepper
1 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 lb. Uncooked ground beef OR Turkey
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. leaf oregano, crumbled
1/2 tsp. leaf basil, crumbled
1/4 tsp. leaf thyme, crumbled
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 (16 oz.) can tomato sauce
3/4 C water
*8 hamburger buns, lightly toasted, if you wish------or do as we do in our low carb household; serve this with Frito Scoops. 
LOL!  (I really cannot take credit for this idea as Doug's daughter Mandi passed it along).  Now it's the ONLY way we eat our Spicy Sloppy Joes!

Saute onion, celery and green pepper in oil in large skillet until soft, about 5 minutes.  Add garlic; cook 1 minute.  Crumble in ground meat; saute until half-cooked, about 2 minutes.  Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, basil, thyme, salt & pepper.  Cook just until meat is cooked through, about 3 minutes.  Stir in Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce and the water.  Bring to boiling over medium heat.  Lower heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 30 minutes. 
Makes 8 servings
