Asian-inspired sloppy Joes, then enchiladas

Spicy Asian-inspired sloppy Joes.

Spicy Asian-inspired sloppy Joes.

If you can’t beat the heat of summer, then you might as well sit down to a plateful. These spicy Asian-inspired sloppy Joes on soft buns are studded with mushrooms and made with Thai red curry paste, sriracha, and chile sauce, accompanied by a garden-fresh slaw with its own mellow heat.

East meets wild West when some of the sloppy Joe mixture is transformed into crowd-pleasing enchiladas, with bubbly cheddar and a zingy lime sour cream. Minimal effort yields a deliciously spicy reward.
