32 ounces black beans/kidney beans
2 cups chopped onions
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes --(canned tomatoes work -- just drain them)
1/4 cup salsa {I use hot}
1 large green pepper
1 cup frozen corn kernels
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons chili
1 teaspoon or more mixed herbs (I cheated and used Mrs. Dash)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cornmeal
3/4 cup skim milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 dash salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 dash chili pepper
1 large egg white
1/2 cup corn kernels

Preparation / Directions:

Sauté onions and pepper in a little vegetable stock and water till tender (about 8 minutes). Add tomatoes, beans, salsa and 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 and milk. Stir into flour and cornmeal mixture - don't over-mix. Fold in the corn kernels, and spread batter over bean mixture and bake at 375F for 25 minutes. I serve this with plain yogurt {reduced fat, can't get fat-free around my neck of the woods} and extra salsa on the sid
