Recipe Instructions

Saute onions & pepper in a little vegetable stock & water till tender (about 8 mins). Add tomatoes, beans, salsa & corn. Add the spices and simmer while you get the topping ready.

{Original recipe called for 3 or 4 tablespoons of oil and 1 whole egg in the batter. I increased the milk slightly, added about 1/2 more teaspoon of baking powder and used just the egg white} Sift together dry ingredients. Beat egg white & milk. Stir into flour & cornmeal mixture - don't over mix.

Fold in the corn kernels, and spread batter over bean mixture and bake at 375for 25 minutes.

I serve this with plain yogurt {reduced fat, can't get fat free around my neck of the woods} & extra salsa on the side.
