Sassy Jolene

This is my tongue in cheek take on a Sloppy Joe.  My Sassy Jolene begins with some of the same ingredients as a Sloppy Joe, but being sassy and all, she raises the bar quite a bit.

1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
1 large can Manwich (your choice of flavor)
1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 8 oz. package elbow macaroni, cooked and drained

Velveeta shreds (of course Jolene would prefer Velveeta over any other cheese)
Chopped jalapenos (of course Jolene wouldn't remove the seeds, she's sassy)
Sour Cream

In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown ground chuck and drain.  Lower heat to low.  Add Manwich and pinto beans and stir to combine.  Slowly add in cooked macaroni and fold into Manwich mixture until everything is all mixed up together and you have this lovely large skillet of goodness.

Now you could stop right here and have a wonderful one pot meal.  But if you want to have a little fun, spoon it over Fritos, add your shredded Velveeta, top with sour cream and jalapenos and enjoy.

If you REALLY want to go for it.....listen to this as you cook.
