    1.62 oz packet of Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce Mix
    6 oz canned tomato paste
    8 c water, divided
    2 TBS canola oil
    1 c onion, chopped
    1/2 c green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1 medium garlic clove, minced
    1.5 c dry yellow cornmeal
    Cooking spray
    15 oz canned black beans, drained and rinsed
    15 oz canned yellow corn, drained and rinsed
    2 c cooked chicken breast, skinless, diced
    1.5 c FF or soy shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350*. Prepare enchilada sauce according to package directions, using tomato paste and 3 c water. (You will end up with 3 c sauce, total.)

Heat oil in a large saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Add onion, pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove 1 c of onion mixture and place in a large mixing bowl; set aside. Stir 3 c water into remaining onion mixture and bring to a boil.

Meanwhile, add cornmeal to remaining 2 c of water in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Gradually add cornmeal mixture to boiling water/onion mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until cornmeal is thickened, about 4-6 minutes.

Coat a 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray. Spread cornmeal mixture evenly in bottom of dish. Spoon beans, corn and chicken into reserved onion mixture; combine thoroughly. Spread half of enchilada sauce over cornmeal layer; top with all of bean mixture then remaining enchilada sauce. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake until heated through and cheese is melted, about 45 minutes. Slice into 12 pieces and serve.
