Saucy BBQ Sloppy Joes

I got this recipe from an older issue of Kraft Food and Family magazine(back when it was free).I made it for the first time last night and I thought it was delicious.For the BBQ sauce, I used a KS City style flavor and it had a nice smokey flavor.Something different but very good.

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 each green pepper and onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 lb. (4 oz.) VELVEETA®, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
4 hamburger buns

BROWN meat in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Add peppers and onions; cook 5 min., stirring occasionally.

STIR in barbecue sauce, water and VELVEETA; cook 2 min. or until VELVEETA is melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Meanwhile, toast cut sides of buns.

FILL buns with meat mixture just before serving.
