If you like your meals a bit spicier, you might enjoy some green chili's in the filling or mixed into the cornbread topping!
1 lb hamburger (I prefer 90/10)
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
3 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt.
pepper to taste
1 15 oz. can petite diced tomatoes
1 15 oz. can of black olives, sliced
1 cup frozen corn or 1 15 oz. can corn, drained
Brown hamburger and onion until onion is translucent. Add the remaining ingredients and warm through. Place in a greased 9x13 pan or other casserole dish.
1 C. yellow corn meal
1 C. flour
1 T. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C. milk
1/3 C. oil
Mix all together until well blended. Pour over meat mixture in pan. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with 1 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese. Return to oven and bake another 15 minutes until topping is set and cheese is melted.
Joy's Notes: You can save time and either buy sliced olives (which are more expensive) OR leave the olives whole.
