Last week I opened up one of my Betty Crocker newsletters and found this recipe in it. I printed it off and thought it would be perfect for our Super Bowl gathering. The sloppy joes were a hit except they were a little spicy for me. Although, today, I had some leftover for my lunch, and I enjoyed them more. They were super easy to make just put in the crock-pot and let them be.
