Recipe by justcallmetoni
READY IN: 55mins




  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a non stick skillet, brown the ground beef and break it apart using a spoon. Add the onions and green peppers and garlic. Once the meat is cooked, drain off any excess fat. Alternately, transfer the contents of the pan to a plate lined with two paper towels, wipe skillet and return beef to pan.
  • After draining excess fat using either method, add the tomatoes, corn, chili powder and 1/2 tablespoon of cornmeal. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Transfer to a one quart casserole.
  • Place the milk, cornmeal and salt in a small saucepan and bring to a light boil. Reduce to a simmer and stir frequently until thickened. Alternately, you can cook the ingredients in a microwave and cook for 2 and 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
  • In a small bowl beat the egg whites by hand until foamy. Slowly add in the cornmeal, stirring to make sure it does not scramble the egg. Add the soy cheese/cheese if using.
  • Top the casserole filling with the cornmeal mush.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes the top should be puffed and lightly browned.
