1/2cupshredded sharp cheddar cheese
Fresh parsleyfor garnish if desired
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a 12-inch, oven-safe skillet oven medium heat. Crumble ground beef into the skillet and cook for several minutes; add diced onion, carrot, green beans and bell peppers. Cook over medium heat until beef is no longer pink and vegetables are soft. Drain grease from the pan (I just push the meat and veggies to the side and use paper towels to soak up the grease).
Stir in frozen corn, pinto beans and Manwich Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce. Cook for about 5 minutes, until mixture is slightly thickened. Spread evenly around the pan. Arrange frozen tater tots on top of the beef mixture. Sprinkle with sharp cheddar cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until tots are crispy and cheese is melted.
Cool for several minutes and garnish with fresh chopped parsley (if desired) before serving.
