Something old fashioned and traditional with a new twist for a weeknight dinner. Spicy chorizo with the can sauce stuff. Then we add a bread upgrade changing a hamburger bun to a nice soft but crusty roll. No plastic wrapped cheese – we used freshly grated cheddar jack cheese and some pickled onions and jalapeños. So here is the new style sloppy Joe, but I kept the traditional shirt stain you’ll get when you eat it.
1 pound chorizo sausage without casing
1 can Manichaeism sloppy Joe sauce
2 sandwich rolls
1/2 cup cheddar Jack cheese, grated
1 jalapeño, sliced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons water
In a microwave safe bowl add onion, jalapeño, sugar, vinegar, and water. Microwave for 90 seconds. Set aside.
In a skillet on medium heat add chorizo and cook until brown.
Add sloppy Joe sauce. Cook for 7 -10 minutes.
Cut roll in half.
