      1/2  pound         ground pork sausage
    1      pound         lean ground beef
    1      clove         garlic -- minced
    1      cup           onion -- chopped
    2      cups          celery -- sliced
   28      oz. can       tomatoes
    2      cups          canned whole kernel corn
                         salt
    2      teaspoons     chili powder
      1/2  cup           cornmeal
    1 1/2  cups          pitted ripe olives
    1 1/2  cups          Jack or American cheese -- shredded
 
      Cook sausage until lightly browned, stirring to keep crumbly. 
 Pour off excess fat, add beef and cook and stir until browned. Stir 
 in garlic, onion and celery and cook until vegetables are tender but 
 not browned. Stir in tomatoes, corn, salt and chili powder and simmer 
 about 15 minutes. Slowly stir in cornmeal and cook until thickened. 
 Stir in olives. Turn into greased 2-quart casserole and top with 
 cheese. Bake at 350 degrees 45 minutes. Formatted by Lynn Thomas.

 made this on 4-9-97. Added 3 more cloves garlic, 1/2 red pepper and 
 1/2 green pepper, chopped fine and cooked the meat and vegetables all 
 at the same time. This was an easy recipe to prepare and tasted 
 great!
