Teach your old dog a new trick with these Southwestern Sloppy José Hot Dogs. They’re an inexpensive and flavorful family meal that everyone will love. They’re also a cheap and cheerful way to feed the gang while watching the big game.
My husband and I, along with some of his brothers and sisters, recently purchased a half of a steer from another family member who is a cattle farmer. As you can imagine, I now have more beef in my freezer than ever have before, and a lot of it is ground beef.
I’m not sure why the ratio of ground beef to the other cuts of meat is so high, but what I do know is that this is some of the best tasting ground beef we have ever eaten, so I’m not complaining. Since my freezer is brimming with ground beef, I’ll be cooking with it…a lot, and most likely sharing the majority of recipes with you here on my blog.
First up is my original recipe for Southwestern Sloppy José Hot Dogs with Black Beans & Chiles. The base of the Sloppy José sauce is browned ground beef sauteed with onions, Southwestern seasonings, and some canned black beans and fire-roasted chiles for a subtle yet noticeable kick of flavor.
This casual yet flavorful meal can be on the dinner table in under 30 minutes, and odds are you already have everything you need to make these Sloppy José Hot dogs in your pantry, freezer, and refrigerator right now.
The ingredients list is short and inexpensive so feeding a hungry family, or even a crowd for the big game celebration, won’t break the bank. In addition, this simple recipe will ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy the party with your family and friends and not be tucked away in the kitchen cooking while everyone else is having fun watching the game.
Making Southwestern Sloppy José Hot Dogs couldn’t be easier to make. Let me show you how:
Brown one pound of ground beef in a large skillet over medium high heat along with one medium chopped red onion. Reduce the heat to medium and add four tablespoons of tomato paste, one can of fire roasted diced tomatoes…
…one can of black beans (drained and rinsed), one small can of fire roasted green chiles, one teaspoon salt, a half teaspoon of black pepper, one teaspoon smoked paprika, one and a half teaspoons cumin, and one and a half teaspoons of garlic powder. Heat through and serve over hot dogs.

If you’re still hungry for more family friendly recipes featuring Southwestern flavors I have a few others I’d love to suggest, just to name a few.
And last, but certainly not least, with everything that’s going on in American politics lately my hand painted and frosted Scandal wine glass seemed like an appropriate choice to feature at this time 😉
The hand painted Scandal wine glass shown above is available in my shop for purchase. It is the largest wine glass size I offer at 22 ounces. It will come in its own gift box, and is dishwasher safe. I paint all of my wine glasses with loving care and great attention to detail, and all of my items are painted to order and unique. I welcome special orders for all of my hand painted glassware and fabric pieces. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is something I can paint for you.
