    Tamale Pie


        1 pound lean ground beef
        1 cup chopped onion
        1 large green bell pepper, chopped
        1 large can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
        1 large can (28 ounces) tomatoes, cut up
        1 can (16 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
        1 small can (4 ounces) sliced ripe olives
        2 cloves garlic, minced
        1 tablespoon sugar
        1/2 teaspoon salt
        2 teaspoons chili powder
        dash black pepper
        1 cup grated Cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
        3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
        1/2 teaspoon salt
        2 cups cold water
        1/2 teaspoon chili powder
        1 tablespoon butter or margarine
        1/2 cup grated Cheddar or Mexican blend cheese, for topping (optional)

    Brown ground beef with onions and green pepper; drain well. Add tomato sauce, tomatoes, corn, olives, garlic, sugar, salt, chili powder and black pepper. Heat to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until thickened. Add cheese; stir until cheese is melted. Set filling aside.
    In a saucepan, combine cornmeal, salt, water and chili powder. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick. Stir in butter. Spread half of the mixture into a baking dish, about 12- x 8-inches. Spoon filling over bottom crust; spoon remaining cornmeal mixture over filling. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes. If desired, sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese over the crust about 5 minutes before casserole is done.
    Serves 6.
