Black Bean Sloppy Joes

Black Bean Sloppy Joes
(serves 10, and even my pickiest eater loves these)
 OAMC meal

1/4 cups olive oil, or other fat
2 onions, chopped
4 tablespoons chili powder (optional, we usually use less)
1 green pepper, chopped
6 cups cooked black turtle beans
2-4 tablespoons Bragg Amino Acids (or soy sauce)
1 teaspoon oregano
2 cups tomato sauce
Molasses/brown sugar to taste (the more the merrier!)
perhaps some ketchup- adds to the ‘joe’ flavor
Splash of Worcestershire sauce
Dash of mustard

In large skillet or pan, saute onions and peppers in olive oil, and chili powder and cook until just fragrant. Add remaining ingredients, simmer briefly.  Either serve immediately on toasted buns, or  freeze in zippered plastic freezer bag.

If your family is like ours, you’ll want to freeze a package of buns along with the black beans, too, because if you don’t hide the buns in the freezer somebody will eat them before you have the black beans.

To serve, thaw overnight in refrigerator, heat through on saucepan just before serving. Serve on toasted bread or rolls.  You can put the frozen beans in the crockpot and cook all day- the flavors blend and the meal is cooking nicely while you have to be out somewhere.

Good with cole slaw and chips, or stewed tomatoes and a salad.
