This makes a very large casserole dish -- so is especially good to take to potlucks and large gatherings. I have never tried to cut the recipe in half -- but I'm sure it could be done without any problem. (I believe I have the size of the Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix right -- they are the small boxes)

  • 2 12 lbs ground sirloin
  • 1 12 cups chopped onions
  • 1 (16 ounce) jarmedium ortega garden-style salsa

  • 1 (16 ounce) bag frozen corn
  • 1 cup sliced ripe olives
  • TOPPING
