Recipe: Slow Cooker So-Easy Sloppy Joes

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.
