Mexicalli Pie

This is the recipe that started the whole thing, that launched Healthy Exchanges. It's the first one I ever created--and when I served it to Cliff, he told me he would eat anything else I prepared, no matter how healthy, as long as it tasted this good! That's about as high a compliment a "truck-drivin' man" can give.

Serves 8

16 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green and/or red bell peppers
1 1/2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 cup chunky salsa
3/4 cup (3 ounces) Kraft shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup (3 ounces) crushed corn chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet sprayed with olive-flavored cooking spray, brown meat, onions, and green peppers. Add corn, salsa, Cheddar cheese, and black pepper. Spray a 10-inch pie plate. Top with crushed corn chips. Bake 30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before serving.
