Mexican Pie

1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped white onion
1 package taco seasoning
1 4 oz. can chopped green chilies
1 1/2 cups grated cheese
1 14 1/2 oz. can diced stewed tomatoes
1 large can black olives, chopped
*Optional* 1 can of kidney beans

Brown the ground beef and onions. Add the taco seasoning. When thoroughly browned, add the green chilies, can of tomatoes and chopped olives. Bring to a boil and them simmer for about 5 minutes, or until most of the liquid cooks off. You don't want it to be too runny.

1 1/4 cup milk
1 1/4 cup Bisquick or other baking mix, like Jiffy
1/2 cup yellow corn meal
3 eggs
1/8 tsp. red pepper sauce (if you like a little heat. You can substitute with an 1/8 tsp. of cayenne pepper)

Mix all together with an electric mixer until smooth.Preheat oven to 400. Spray a 9x13 baking dish. Pour in ground beef mixture. Top with cheese. Pour over topping. Bake until golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. About 25-30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
