These Spicy Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) with Ground Beef recipe reminds me so much of how we used to make “farce” back home. “Une farce” or stuffed meat (English translation per Google translate) is not the right way to explain it. I am referring to ground beef cooked with very little sauce,  spread over bread, topped with cheese, and cooked pressed down in a skillet like a panini. This used to be one of my favorite ways to eat ground beef.

This recipe is a cross between a sloppy joe and a chili, but it’s not exactly either one. Sloppy joes are typically made with ground beef, ketchup, and other seasonings and served on buns. Chilies are typically made with ground beef, beans, and tomatoes and served in bowls.

This recipe has elements of both sloppy joes and chilies, but it’s not exactly either one. It has ground beef and beans, like chili, but it also has other ingredients that are more typical of sloppy joes, such as onions, garlic, and spices.

This delicious and versatile recipe can be served on buns, in bowls, or over rice. It’s a great way to use up leftover ground beef, and it’s also a good source of protein and fiber.
