Set the top over the bottom of the boiler, filled with 1 to 2 inches of boiling water, put a lid on the top and steam the cornmeal for 30 to 45 minutes until the water is all absorbed. For tamale; Beat the butter into the hot cooked cornmeal and set aside. Fry the onion, garlic and bell pepper with the chili powder in 3 tablespoons butter or oil until the vegetables are just slightly softened, 2 or 3 minutes. Add the cooked meat, pimientos, olives and season to taste. Put a layer of cornmeal mush in a baking dish, add the layer of meat filling and cover with another layer of mush. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until the mush is crusty on top, about 30 minutes.
