    Noo's Note:

    I found this in a book called Recipes for a Yummy's really simple and very tasty. I like to add a few chilli flakes to the mix for a little extra heat.

      This is a nice little "chili" recipe. We have never eaten polenta, and I couldn't find it in my local market (even with assistance) so it was an interesting experience. I ended up making my own polenta using Soft Oven Polenta, which seemed to work just fine. I just cooked that as directed and omitted the boiling water and continued with adding the evaporated milk and cheddar cheese. Next time I would leave out the cinnamon and add a Spanish onion, just to suit our tastes. Thank you for a nice casserole and a new taste experience Noo! Made for PRMR.

      Great casserole - love the polenta topping. A great lunch or dinner idea and all you need is a salad to go with it. Will definitely keep this recipe handy : ) Made for PRMR, February, 2014.

      I simply loved this. The polenta topping is genius and it tastes wonderful when mixed into the casserole below. This easy recipe delivers a lot of great flavor and I will make it again.
