My favorite sloppy joe recipe is my Grandma's tried and true recipe here, but when I read the name of these sloppy joes I just had to try them. Honestly you can't even compare the two recipes because they are so so different. If you want a traditional sloppy joe, go for Grandma Lill's, if you want to try something with lots of flavor and like a mix between a sloppy joe and barbecued pork sandwich, go for this one here. These are so wonderful and have such amazing flavor with the chili powder and the bits of baked beans. Plus the fact that you can throw it in the crockpot and forget about it is my kind of meal!
Campfired-Up Sloppy Joes
Recipe from Crockpot Recipe Collection
makes 4-6 sandwiches
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 medium red bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped

1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
2 Tbsp cider vinegar
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

6 kaiser rolls, split and warmed
Brown ground beef, onion, bell pepper and garlic 6-8 minutes in large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring to break up meat. Drain and discard excess fat. Transfer beef mixture to a slow cooker.

Add baked beans and stir to combine. Cover and cook on high 3 hours (I'm sure you could do low for 6 hours)
