  • Heat oil in a cast iron skillet until shimmering. Add onion, green pepper, and salt. Cook and stir until soft, about 5 minutes. Add ground chuck and garlic; cook until meat is browned, about 5 minutes. Drain fat if desired. Add beans, chile cooking sauce, and tomatoes. Cook until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

  • Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add cornmeal and salt; cook until thick and creamy, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add corn, Monterey Jack cheese, and jalapeno. Stir well and spread over meat mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden and filling is bubbling, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

First of all I always read the comments to look for variations on the recipe. I don't think cooking is a science where you must follow the recipe precisely but more of an art. I made this late last night and haven't even tasted it myself. However my two roommates report that it's awesome. The only variations that I used were that I shredded a pound of mild cheddar because I didn't have any Monterey Jack cheese and I baked it for a full hour. I will definitely make this again!

This recipe is very good with the exception of the topping. I think when I make it again I will make a cornbread topping and put on it. Read More
