This is an excellent recipe for busy days. Whether your too busy to cook, or short on time to eat dinner. This recipe works for both types of days. These are so good. Everyone loves them, children and adults. They are like a sloppy joe, only with cheese. And this Crock Pot Cheeseburgers recipe is so easy!
Crock Pot Cheeseburgers
1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
8 oz. box processed cheese (aka Velvetta type cheese) , diced (2 c.)
1 medium green bell pepper, diced (1 c.)
1 small onion, diced (1/4 c.)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Cook beef, garlic and peppers until brown; drain. Mix beef and remaining ingredients, except buns, in a 3.5 to 4 quart cooker. Cover and cook on LOW heat until cheese is melted and combined. This may only take 2-3 hours in your crock pot or leave in the crock pot up to 6 to 7 hours. Serve on buns.
This recipe is especially easy if you have the meat already cooked in the freezer. In that case, if you were using fresh peppers and onions, you wouldn’t have to cook them before hand, they will cook in the crock pot. Just dump everything in and turn it on. It doesn’t get any easier than that! You can, of course, leave out the onions and peppers, but they add so much flavor. You could also sub a hotter pepper instead of the bell pepper for a different kind of cheeseburger. I got this recipe on an email list over 10 years ago, so I don’t know the original source.
