• 1 pound ground beef
• 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
• 1 can (10.75 oz.) condensed tomato soup
• 1/2 cup water
• 1 tablespoon chili powder
• 1 can (8 oz.) whole kernel corn, drained
• 1 package (12 oz.) corn muffin mix
• 1 egg, beaten
• 2/3 cup milk
• 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 oz.)


1. Heat oven to 350°F.

2. Cook beef and onion in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well-browned, stirring frequently. Pour off and discard fat. Stir in soup, water, chili powder and corn. Heat to a boil. Spoon into a shallow 11-by-8-inch baking dish. Combine muffin mix, egg and milk in a bowl until just mixed. (Mixture will be lumpy.) Spoon over beef mixture in pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cornbread is golden brown. Sprinkle with cheese.
