Ingredients

  • 4

    tsp canola oil

  • 1

    green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

  • 2

    red onions, chopped (or 1 large onion)

  • 1

    jalapeno pepper, seeded, deveined, and minced (wear gloves to prevent irritation)

  • 1

    garlic clove, minced

  • 1/2

    lb ground skinless turkey breast (1 lb O.K.)

  • 1

    cup tomato sauce (1 can O.K.)

  • 1

    cup frozen corn kernels

  • 3/4

    tsp salt

  • 1/2 - 1

    tsp hot Mexican chili powder

  • 2

    cups water

  • 2/3

    cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal

  • 1/3

    cup shredded fat-free Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Saute the bell pepper, onions, jalapeno pepper, and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, breaking apart with a wooden spoon, until browned, 5-8 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce, corn, ½ tsp of the salt, and the chili powder; bring to boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, stirring once or twice, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 15 minutes. Transfer to an 8 inch square baking dish. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan, bring 1 cup of the water and the remaining ¼ tsp salt to a boil. In a medium bowl, whisk the cornmeal into the remaining 1 cup water. Slowly pour the moist cornmeal into the boiling water in a thin steady stream, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the mixture comes back to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and begins to form large bubbles, about 5 minutes. Spread over the turkey so that it is completely covered. Bake 25 minutes, then sprinkle with the cheese and bake until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. From Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook
