    1 c yellow cornmeal
    2.25 c cold water
    1 cube chicken bouillon
    1 lb lean ground beef
    1 onion, chopped
    1 green pepper, chopped
    4 tsp chili powder
    4 cloves garlic
    1 tsp salt
    Dash pepper
    1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
    1 can Ro-Tel original
    1 can whole kernel corn, drained

    1.5 C. low-fat cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350*. Spray a 9 x 13" casserole pan with Pam.
Bring 2-1/4 cups water plus bouillon cube to a boil. Stir in polenta, and whisk until fairly thick and most lumps are gone (just a few minutes). Spread into bottom of casserole pan and set aside.
Brown beef, onion, and green pepper. Add chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper, and mix well. Add tomato paste, Ro-Tel, corn (with juice; do not drain), and kidney beans.
Spread over the cornmeal crust and top evenly with cheese. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350*.
