How to Make Sloppy Joe Cowboy Beans

These Cowboy Beans are super easy to make. Start with browning some ground beef. Next, stir in sloppy joe seasoning, tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, bacon, and some canned pork & beans. Let that simmer on the stove and serve.

I used a packet of McCormick Sloppy Joe Seasoning Mix and cans of Van Camp’s Pork & Beans in Tomato Sauce. Make sure to grab the plain pork & beans and not baked beans for this recipe.

Can You Freeze Leftover Cowboy Beans?

This makes a good amount of Cowboy Beans, so you might have some leftovers. You can freeze any leftovers for a quick side later. When you are ready to serve the frozen beans, simply thaw and reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop.

As I said, these Sloppy Joe Cowboy Beans were a huge hit! We served them at our 4th of July cookout to rave reviews! They are already back on the menu this weekend! We love to serve these beans with burgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken, grilled pork, and BBQ. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these easy skillet baked beans:

  1. These were a big hit with my family! Tasted even better over the next two days. My husband bought the wrong beans to use though. They were the molasses flavored ones so I used them anyway. Still delicious! Made hot dogs and cornbread to go with it. Yum!
