Slillet, greased 8 x 12 inch baking pan (or) large casserole dish

Step 1.  In skillet, brown ground beef and onion; add tomatoes, sauce, corn, olives, jalepeno peppers and seasonings and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes.

Step 2.  Pour into well greased baking pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 


You Will Need For Topping:
