Spicy Confetti Joes ~ by Sarah

This is an Oregon Beef Council award-winning recipe that Kelsey and I acquired from them a number of years ago.  I modified it a little because it was too rich.  (It originally called for 3 cups of ketchup!)  It's super easy and delicious!

2 lbs. ground beef
1 med. yellow onion, diced
1/2 each red, orange, yellow, and green bell peppers, diced (Or any combination of bell peppers--sometimes not all colors are available.)
1 15-oz. can tomato sauce
1 c. (approx.) ketchup
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 t. Tabasco sauce (More if you want more kick!)
8 hamburger buns (Try whole wheat--you won't even notice!  Less fat and calories, more fiber!)

Brown ground beef.  Add onions and peppers.  Saute until vegetables are tender--about 5 minutes.
(It looks so colorful and pretty!)

In a 3+ cup measuring cup, pour in the tomato sauce.  (This should be almost two cups.)  Add ketchup until the measuring cup is full to the 3-cup mark.  Pour sauce, Tabasco, and brown sugar into the meat mixture and mix well.  Simmer for at least 10 minutes.  Serve on toasted hamburger buns.
