This tasted more like chili than sloppy joes. I cooked mine on low for 8 hrs and when I got home, part of it had burned to the side (but that might be my slow cooker's fault). I may try to make again but with different seasonings so that it actually tastes like sloppy joe.

I love this!

I made this for my son's first birthday party with a side option of mac and cheese. Everybody went nuts for it and I was asked repeatedly for the recipe. Super easy and very tasty.

Best Ever!

Fantastic recipe. Especially for a lazy vegetarian like me who doesn't cook! I forgot to buy more chili powder, so I only had 1 tbs. I substituted by adding 1 tbs of cayenne pepper. Yowza!

Still delicious.

tasty, easy, delicious, scrumptious, did I mention easy?
yum yum yum
Gets better with age.

I made this as written. At first it was just okay but by the end of the week, the last of the left overs were pretty good! It seemed to get better every day. A pretty easy 4 stars for me.


This dish was fantastic. I Love bean dishes and I love sloppy joes. This was a perfect combo of both. I made it exactly as the recipe stated. I always follow the recipe the first time I make it and then I tweak when I make it again. This recipe needs no tweaking. Perfect the way it is. I did use 1 TBS of Penzey's Chili 3000, and 2 TBS of their regular Chili seasoning. It got even better the next day. Reheats wonderfully.
