Brown 1 ˝ pounds hamburger. Add chili powder to taste, 1 can diced green chilies, 1 onion, chopped, 1 cup chopped black olives,1 can corn, and 1 cup water. Cover and simmer. Meanwhile, in a saucepan bring 4 cups of water to a boil; add 2 teaspoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of chili powder. Gradually stir in 1-˝ cups of corn meal, and stir with a whisk to prevent lumps. Continue cooking over medium heat until thickened. Set aside 1 cup and line bottom of greased casserole with the remaining corn meal mixture. Add meat to the casserole and spread out. Place reserved corn meal mixture in dollops, and then cover the top of the casserole with longhorn cheese (at least 2 cups). Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is my grandmother’s recipe. She made it often for Sunday lunches, and other company dinners. I thought that the recipe was lost until my sister-in-law Tammy gave it to me in 1986. She had obtained it from my grandmother as a newlywed bride.
