 add garlic and  cook just  to aroma;  drain and  set aside
 in a deep  greased  casserole;  brown  meat,  breaking  up
 large pieces as it cooks; add  the meat, corn meal, milk,
 tomato solids, corn, olives, salt and pepper to the
 casserole  and mix well; bake, uncovered, in a preheated
 350F oven for  1 1/2 hours, or  until a knife  inserted in
 the  center comes out clean.
   Make a roux  of the butter  and flour being  careful not
 to brown.  Thin  with the reserved  tomato liquid, and
 tomato juice if required.   Add the chili powder,  cayenne,
 cumin, then salt and pepper to taste.  Spoon servings of
 the pie onto individual dishes, top  with the chili sauce
 and sprinkle with paprika.  Serves 6 to 8.
   Note:  The sauce should be the consistency of heavy
 cream. DO NOT BE PUT OFF BY THE APPEARANCE OF THIS RECIPE.
