Update Servings
  • 2 olive or canola oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 pepper
  • 2 garlic, or more if preferred
  • 1/4 chopped jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • 1 ground meat (beef, lamb or turkey)
  • 2 tomato pieces, canned or fresh, with juice
  • 2 corn kernels, fresh, canned or frozen
  • 1/2 broth, water or wine
  • 1 chili powder, or to taste
  • 1 corn meal
  • 1 grated cheese (cheddar, jack, or any kind that melts well)
  • salt
Container: 10 inch skillet, 8 x 8 baking dish
  • Chop onion, garlic and pepper(s). Heat oil and cook onion, garlic and pepper until softened-- about 5 minutes. Mix meat with 3/4 teaspoon salt, crumble and add to pan. Cook and stir until meat is done.
  • Add tomatoes, corn, broth and chile powder. Simmer together while preparing the corn meal.
  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Bring 2 cups water to a boil; slowly add corn meal, stirring vigorously to prevent lumping. (Mixture will be quite thick.) Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste.
  • Stir corn meal mixture into other ingredients.  Sprinkle cheese over the top and bake about 30 minutes.
  • TIP: if you use an oven-proof skillet to prepare ingredients, bake the pie in it and save cleaning up an extra dish.
