Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

In a large coffee cup (if you have a "soup mug," use that), add the elbows, deli meat, seasoning blend and enough water to cover the elbows by at least 2 inches. Cover the mug with a paper towel and place a plate underneath for the water that will spill over during the cooking process. Microwave on high until the elbows are tender, 4 to 8 minutes depending on the strength of your microwave. Carefully remove from the microwave and drain in a colander. Add the elbows and deli meat back into the mug.

To the same mug, add the heavy cream, Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese, pepper-Jack, a pinch of salt and a grind of black pepper. Microwave on high, checking and stirring every 25 to 30 seconds, until the cheese is melted and a sauce forms, up to 90 seconds. Serve warm and get back to binge-watching your favorite TV show.
