Telling people to dump cans of ready-made food in a pot is not a recipe!

This was pretty good, I don't know if I would try it again. A whole can of Manwich is too much for this, I suggest half a can. Otherwise this recipe is a good idea. A good way to sneak beans into your diet.

I made this for a weekend picnic. I tripled the recipe. I used 3 lbs. ground meat, two cups of onions, two cans baked beans and 3 cans of Manwich sauce. I cooked the meat and onions as directed but then put the beans and sauce in the crock pot, mixed and added the meat/onions. I cooked on low for 6 hours while everyone enjoyed the pool. Was a big hit and everyone liked the beans in their sloppy joes.

This recipe is good, but it may cause vegetable mouth. If this occurs the only fix is an entire can of Reddi Whip.

My kids love Sloppy Joes so this was an ideal recipe for them. And, fortunately for a tired pregnant mama, it's easy to make. That makes it pretty much a win-win dish. Because of some dietary restrictions in our family, I did make a couple of changes to the recipe: made my own barbeque sauce (instead of using the Manwich sauce) and used ground turkey. With regard to the meat, I used an entire pound since I wasn't sure when I would use up a random 1/4 lb of leftover meat. I liked the idea of using beans (and the whole wheat buns) to add more fiber to this normally protein heavy comfort food. My kids loved the "Pork and Beans", but I found them a bit mushy; I think I would rather prepare my own beans or use a different or heartier canned bean. Otherwise, with the soft bun, saucy meat and very soft beans, the overall texture was uniformly "too soft". Still, it's a good, fiber rich alternative to the traditional Sloppy Joe. I plan on making it again, changing the type of beans used.
