    vrvrvr's Note:

    This is from Betty Crocker's "Good and Easy Dinners" with my adaptation. Go mild or's up to you. This is good for when you don't have any meat defrosted for dinner but you want something hearty, pretty and kid-pleasing. (It qualifies also as pure comfort food - bonus!) For the crushed tortilla chips, try a combo of Doritos and plain Tostitos...Fritos are good, as well.

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 375.
    2. 2
      Mix cornmeal, water, chicken broth and salt in medium saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly, over medium-high heat.
    3. 3
      Reduce heat to medium, continue cooking, stirring frequently, until mixture is very thick and stiff (2 to 5 minutes). Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Stir in egg and half-n-half.
    5. 5
      Spread cornmeal mixture into buttered 9" pie plate. (*I find that using a lightly buttered sandwich-baggie over my hand works great for this, to push the cornmeal mixture evenly into the pie plate and up the sides.) Bake uncovered 15 minutes.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, mix salsa, jalapenos (if using)and beans in medium bowl; mash a little with a potato masher to incorporate.
    7. 7
      When cornmeal crust is done, spread bean mixture over evenly.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with cheese and tortilla chips.
    9. 9
      Bake uncovered 20 minutes.
    10. 10
      Let stand a few minutes before slicing.
    11. 11
      Top individual servings with sour cream.
