Tamale Pie

This is a hearty can-of-this-n-that recipe.  The hamburger mix can be served over cornbread or you can serve it over scones and call them Navajo tacos.  Put the cornbread in the oven and then start the ground beef, this way, they will be ready together.

Tamale Pie
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 large onion
1/2 c. green pepper
1 clove garlic, minced

Combine these and cook in a skillet.  When hamburger is browned, spoon off fat and add the following:
1 can corn, drained
1 can kidney beans, drained
2 cans tomato sauce (or 3 to make it saucy to your taste)
1 can diced tomatoes with juice (you could also use the kind canned with chilies)
1/2 Tbsp.  sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 c. chopped olives (opt)

Heat through and serve over cornbread, sprinkled with grated cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
