Tamale Pie
(for approximately 10 servings, if not more)

2 lbs ground beef
2 16-oz cans corn
2 26-oz cans diced totatoes
1 ripe green bell pepper
3 frozen beef tamales, thawed and sliced into 1/4-inch sliced
1/4 lb colby longhorn cheese, grated
1 small can pitted black olives

Thoroughly break up and brown ground beef, drain fat

Combine equal amounts diced tomatoes and corn in a strainer, mix and drain

Core and slice bell pepper into approximately 1/8 inch ring slices (i.e. cut
horizontally through pepper).

In an approximately 13 high by 8" deep casserole bowl, layer the above
ingrediants as follows, from bottom to top.

1 layer tamale slices
1 layer corn/tomato mix
1 layer ground beef
1 layer corn/tomato mix
1 layer ground beef
1 layer grated cheddar cheese
1 layer tamale slices

Garnish with bell pepper slices and olives, putting pepper slices
so their edges touch, but don't overlap (O.K. they can overlap a
little!), and fill in holes with olives, as many as you want.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 1 hr.

This dish can be served several different ways, it's great with
flour or corn tortillas as burrito stuffing, on a fried tortilla
as tostada topping, or served all by itself with sour cream,
guacamole, salsa.
