Cook meat and onion with garlic powder until meat is brown and onion is tender. Stir in tomato sauce, milk, eggs, corn, cornmeal, chili powder, and salt. Pour into 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cut into 16 squares and serve immediately.

Adjust spices to your taste...I usually omit the salt, reduce the garlic, and add Adobo, cumin, and original Mrs. Dash to taste.

    I added cheese over the top for the last 5 minutes and next time I will try adding some red pepper for a little more spice, but a very good recipe. - 11/24/09

    This was very good! We topped it with a little cheese. My kids even ate it. I think next time I will make it a little more spicy. - 1/30/08

    This is fantastic. It has a great texture and there is so much flavor that I think I added maybe 1/2 tsp. Next time I'll try it with turkey meat and adobo. Thanks! - 1/25/08
