How to make it
- Coat the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
- Brown the beef and onions until the meat is no longer pink and the onion is limp.
- Drain fat from the pan and sprinkle the meat with the chile powder.
- Cook for 1 minute, then transfer to the slow cooker.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, milk, egg, salt, and cumin until smooth.
- Stir in the tomatoes, corn, and olives, then pour into the cooker and stir to combine all the ingredients.
- Cover and cook on high 3-4 hours. (I don't see why cooking it on low for 7-8 hours wouldn't work.)
- Sprinkle the cheese over the top, drizzle with oil, cover, and continue to cook, on high for 10 more minutes, to melt the cheese.
