  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and red bell pepper; saute until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add ground beef, garlic, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Cook and stir until beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Mix corn into the beef mixture and toss to defrost, about 3 minutes. Drain and discard fat. Add about 1/4 of the shredded Mexican cheese blend and mix well. Pour meat sauce into a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Cover meat with a thin layer of salsa.
  4. Combine cornmeal, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl. Add milk and eggs; stir until well blended. Pour cornmeal mixture on top of salsa layer and top with remaining shredded Mexican cheese blend.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until browned on top, about 30 minutes.

Bad recipe. Temperature (450 degrees) is too high and cook time is too long. Lower temperature (400) shorter cook time (35 min) and creamed corn instead of frozen corn works better. Following...

Great recipe!! My cornmeal got a bit dry with 30 min so I suggest checking on it after 20-25 minutes.

Very easy to make! I loved it! I made this for a family get together and everyone really enjoyed it. All three of my son-in-laws got seconds even with all the other fun food that was there.

Easy and quick with a minimum amount of clean up

I cheated. I used Jiffy corn muffin mix for the top and then put the cheese in it. We really like! I've made it twice already and I plan to take it to a square dance some time.
