Chili Cheese Sloppy Joes and Honey Lime Coleslaw

Oh my goodness people, I LOVE this coleslaw! I had two heads of cabbage from my CSA bag that I need to use in someway so this recipe sounded great. The other is destined for German Style Stuffed Cabbages (I am rubbing my hands together in glee, I can't wait - it's one of my favorite things!) I am going to do them in the slow cooker I think. Anywho, back to the coleslaw it has a dressing of mayonnaise, honey, and lime juice and then also some fresh cilantro. Oh it is so good! I like cabbage in general, so odds are most coleslaws I am going to like just because. The original recipe for our sloppy Joe's tonight needed a bit of something extra, so I added a traditional ingredient for sloppy Joe's, ketchup! Problem solved!
Chili Cheese Sloppy Joe's

Prep and cook time: 25 minutes
1 red onion , chopped and divided
1 pound lean ground beef
2 1/2 tablespoons chili powder

1/2 cup diced tomatoes, undrained
1/4 to 1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
4 hamburger buns
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
[1] Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add half of the onion, ground beef, chili powder and garlic.
[2] Sauté until beef is cooked through, breaking up with spoon, about 5 minutes. Add beans and tomatoes. Simmer until thickened, about 15 minutes. Mix in cilantro and season with salt and pepper.
[3] Meanwhile, place french bread on a baking sheet and warm in oven, about 10 minutes. Transfer toasts to individual plates and top with chili, cheese, and remaining chopped onions.
