A recipe // The not so sloppy, sloppy joes

Sloppy Joes were definitely a staple in my house while growing up. I swear we had them at least once a week. They are so easy to make for dinner during the work week while trying to juggle homework, laundry, dishes, bath time, story time....Ect Ect Ect. 

Well this is MY take on the famous Sloppy Joe---
You will need
1 lb ground meat
1/4 cup of black beans(drained)
1/2 cup chunky salsa
1/2 cup of frozen corn
Hamburger buns
A hungry belly
Cook the meat as you normally would until brown. About 5 mins. On high. 

Drain all that nasty fat juice. 

On that note I found an awesome way to dump grease out of your pan is to take a piece of foil, put it in a bowl, and dump the grease in there from the pan. When the grease hardens, just ball up your foil and throw it away. Life saver y'all!!!

Reduce heat to medium. Stir in corn, beans, and slowly add salsa. Cook until mixture is heated through. The end. That's it. Easy peasy. 

I make it a lot and T.J. Hasn't thrown up yet :)So that's always a good sign.
