Fiesta Bake a la Chris
1 pound ground beef 1 cup chopped onion 3/4 cup salsa fresca – I used 1 c. Chi Chi’s Mild salsa 1 package taco seasoning mix 1/4 cup water 1 cup whole kernel corn 1/2 cup sliced ripe olives, drained – 1 (4 oz) can, drained 1 (4 ounce) package corn muffin mix 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese – I used Mexican mixed shredded cheese 1/2 cup diced green chiles – 1 (4 oz.) can drained
In a skillet, cook ground beef and onion over medium-high heat until beef is no longer pink; drain. Stir in salsa, taco seasoning mix and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Stir in corn and olives. Spoon into ungreased 8-inch square baking dish. (I used one of the tin foil casserole pans.) Prepare batter for corn muffin mix using 1 (8.5 ounce) can creamed-style corn, 1/2 cup milk and 1 large egg. Stir in cheese and chiles until smooth; spread over meat mixture. Sprinkle some shredded Mexican mixed cheese. Bake, uncovered, in preheated 350 degree F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Top with additional salsa and sour cream, if desired. Makes 6 servings.
