How to make it
- In a 1 1/2 qt casserole, pack the cornmeal mush all over the interior, creating a crust. Reserve some for the top crust.
- In a large bowl, combine the filling ingredients. and spoon into crust. I layed a shallow layer of the veggie mix on the bottom and spread the cheese combos all over the bottom.and cheese again about 2/3 up.being surrounded with the filling. It should be filled within 1/2 inch of the top. Plop the reserved corn meal on top and roughly spread over the filling.
- Stir the 2 Tablespoons reserved green chiles into 1/2 cup sour cream, and spread over the cornmeal..
- Bake at 350 for 30 mins, or when it is bubbling around the edges. Serve and enjoy!
