Super Simple Sloppy Joes

I'm not a huge fan of Sloppy Joes, but I do make them every now and again. I've made these a few times when we've had a lot of company (easy, cheap to make in bulk, can do the day before and just stick in crockpot day of...). As simple as they are, people always have seconds. I actually get hungry for these every now and then.

2 lbs ground beef (or ground round or ground sirloin)
small green pepper
small onion
chili powder
salt & pepper
1 can tomato soup
1 can cream of celery soup
American Cheese (optional)
yellow mustard (optional)

dice onion & pepper small and brown along with the beef then sprinkle with salt & pepper; drain (*note: be sure your onion & pepper is tender. Because I do mine the day ahead, the time it spends in the crockpot the following day cooks up the onion & pepper nicely)

add the canned soups and combine. If you want your Sloppy Joes to have "a little kick" add a little chili powder

serve on buns (I like a slice of cheese on mine. My dad eats yellow mustard on his. I've seen a lot of people eat these open face with a fork too)

(I'll try to remember to post a picture tonight)
