Ingredients

2 teaspoons corn oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 medium green bell pepper -- chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
8 ounces kidney beans -- cooked and drained
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 375F.


Spray 8 inch square pan with nonstick cooking spray.


To prepare chili, place large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 30 seconds.


Add oil; heat 30 seconds more.


Add cumin and cook, stirring constantly, just until fragrant, about 30 seconds (do not burn). Stir in onion and green bell pepper; cook, stirring often, until tender, 4-5 minutes.


Stir in tomatoes, beans and chili powder; cook 5 minutes.


Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan and set aside (may be done ahead up to this point.)


To prepare cornmeal topping, bring 2 cups water to a boil.


Gradually add cornmeal in a thin stream, whisking constantly to prevent lumps.


When all cornmeal is added, stir in salt; continue cooking, whisking constantly, until thickened to the consistency of mashed potatoes, about 3 minutes.


Immediately spread mixture evenly over chili in pan and bake until chili mixture bubbles, about 15 minutes.
