Cooking with Sperg!

With the latest Spergie upgrades, one of the game changers for me has been help figuring out what to cook.

So let’s post a list of recipes taken directly from SpergBot. Preferably the actually good ones.

$prompt recipe for taco sloppy joes

Taco Sloppy Joes Recipe:


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (1 oz)
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • Optional toppings: lettuce, tomato, sour cream, jalapenos, avocado


In a large skillet, cook the ground beef, onion, and bell pepper over medium heat until the beef is browned and the vegetables are softened, about 8-10 minutes. Drain any excess grease.

Stir in the taco seasoning, salsa, water, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens and the flavors meld together.

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Split the hamburger buns and place them on the prepared baking sheet, cut side up. Toast the buns in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until they are lightly golden and crispy.

  1. To assemble the taco sloppy joes, spoon the beef mixture onto the bottom half of each toasted bun. Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheddar cheese on top of the beef mixture.

Place the assembled sloppy joes back on the baking sheet and return them to the oven for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Remove the sloppy joes from the oven and add your desired toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, sour cream, jalapenos, or avocado. Place the top half of the bun on each sloppy joe and serve immediately.

Enjoy your delicious taco sloppy joes!

Yea one of the non shitty things about A.I is it’s ability to get recipes. I’ve used the the bing(lol) A.I update to not only find but ask it to fine tune recipes based on serving or spice level and it’s pretty good about doing that.

I’ve made some great recipes from asking GPT. I made soup one night, and needed a ciabatta-style, hard, chewy bread that I could make that night, as ciabatta takes a day to proof and I needed it sooner than that. It gave me exactly what I was looking for.

I also once asked it to give me a recipe for a Spam sandwich, and it refused because it ‘lacked nutritional value.’
