Slow Cooker Recipe For Spicy Sloppy Joes

Sunday Slow Cooker: Spicy Beef Sloppy Joes

This recipe isn't just low maintenance; it's also adaptable. Serve the mixture atop a toasted kaiser roll, a baked potato, or if you're watching your carbs, in a low-carb wrap or a Southwestern-inspired salad. For a meal that's good any way you serve it, keep reading.
