1 (6 ounce) box chicken flavor stuffing mix (with separate
seasoning packet inside)
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 (15 ounce) can chili with beans
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 cup thawed frozen sweet corn
1/4 cup sliced black olives
Sour cream for garnish (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a greased 2-quart casserole, combine the stuffing mix, stuffing seasoning packet and water. Press evenly into the bottom of the casserole; set aside.
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and onion over medium-high heat. Remove from heat. Stir in the chile, 1 cup of the cheese, the corn and olives. Spoon over the stuffing in the casserole. Bake for 25 minutes or until heated through.
