1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
1 can (11 to 15 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup water
1/2 cup sliced ripe olives

In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef in oil. Add onion, garlic, and bell pepper; cook for 2 minutes, until just tender. Pour off excess grease. Stir in tomatoes, corn, and seasonings; simmer for about 5 minutes longer. Mix 1/2 cup cornmeal with 1 cup water. Stir into the mixture in the skillet. Cover and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes. Add the sliced olives and pour into a lightly greased shallow 2 1/2-quart or 13x9-inch baking pan.
