I just had a hard time sleeping last night, and so got up to make a meal that would last me through the weekend, and beyond, Sloppy Joes. Well, It's sloppy, and tastes great. I wouldn't call it Sloppy Joes anymore though:LOL:. After reading this, give me some ideas what to call this concoction.

1 lb. u/20 ground beef
6 oz. tomato paste
2 tbs. dehydrated mince onion
1 tbs. granulated garlic powder
2 tbs. coarse grind brown seed mustard'
2 tbs. yellow mustard
3 tbs. sweet pickle juice
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 12 oz. can Whole kernel sweet corn
1 12 oz. can dark red kidney beans
1 tbs. Lee & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs. chili powder
Tiny smidgeon of each:
7 pod Duglah powder
Ghost pepper powder
Trinidad Scorpion Maruga powder
Carolina reaper powder

Place ground beef into a large pot over medium-high heat. Break up into crumbles as it cooks. Cover and reduce heat to medium, to prevent browning. After about ten minutes, add onion, and garlic. Put lid back on and simmer another 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, and simmer uncovered until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 30 minutes. Taste, and correct the seasoning.

Though I used 4 of the 5 hottest pepper on the planet, the heat was moderate due to the tiny amount added, just enough to give you a warm glow in your mouth. The flavor is quite good, but like I said, not a sloppy joe. I have pictures of what it looks like. It needs a name as well.

I ate my first bowlful. It's hot again here, and so I ate it cold, without a bun. The chill temp out of the fridge made it very pleasant to eat. It's really filling, with great flavor. Considering the scant amount of pepper powders I added, it was still quite spicy-hot, but manageable, about on the order of Tabasco, but without the vinegar taste. There was definitely more heat after swallowing, on the back end. I'd say my Sloppy Something was a success. Oh, and just so you know, Moose Tracks ice cream eliminates the burn better than anything else I've tried:mrgreen:.

How about Chief's Hot Mess? Good with or without a bun!

Apparently, there are a lot of recipes that use "Hot Mess" as part of the name. I couldn't find any rhyme or reason to it, so I'm guessing they just liked the name?
