Sloppy Joes

*From Ellie Krieger of the FoodNetwork

1 pound extra-lean ground beef
1 onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, minced
1 red pepper, diced
1 can small red beans or pinto beans, preferably low sodium drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups no-salt-added tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon mustard powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
8 whole-wheat burger buns

Brown the meat and the onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking up the meat into crumbles as it cooks.
Pour the drippings out of the pan and discard.
Add the garlic, jalapeno, and red pepper and cook 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes more.
Place a half-cup scoop of the mixture onto each bun and serve.
