      This was really Good!!! Because I have vegetarians as well as meat eaters, I used ground tofu. I also used Enchilada sauce over the tomato sauce and 1 can of green chili's. The Corn crust was lovely, soft and full of flavor. The topping and cheese made a lovely presentation, and the whole dish was full of flavor. My two oldest had their boyfriends over for dinner and they inhaled what would have been for lunch the next day. The next time I will make two recipes worth for dinner. Thanks for posting this recipe. Di

      aside from making the cornmeal a bit too thick on the bottom (I will distribute evenly next time), this was a GREAT meal and was a hit at my house. I will def. make this again.

      I made this for a party where I needed to take a dish to pass and everyone loved it! We don't eat meat so I made it with some back beans, pinto beans, and a little tvp and vegetarians and meat-eaters all seemed to enjoy it. I forgot to mix in the black olives so I just put them on top after I took it out of the oven. I'll make double batch next time!
