      Surprising hit with my family!! I tried green chilies since I had no olives & added a pinch of sugar with the chilie powder. Good for a change.. Surely a keeper!

      Really tastey and filling. I made this in two stages. First I made the meat mixture the night before and the corn meal topping the night I served it, then I put it together and put it in the oven. I used chiles too and replaced 1/2 lb of beef with kidney beans. I also saved the corn for the topping (I did drain it). I like highly seasoned food and felt this was seasoned perfectly.

      This is the BEST casserole I have ever made. I made enough to have leftovers only there weren't any! Next time I am going to double the cornbread topping. It was absolutely fantastic. My husband has spent a lot of time in Mexico and Southern California and found this better than most of the dishes he's had from that area.
