Beef Pot Pie with Cornmeal-Cheese Crust

Directions

  1. Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 3/4-inch pieces. In a large saucepan cook meat, half at a time, in hot oil over medium-high heat until brown. Using a slotted spoon, remove meat, reserving drippings in skillet. Add sweet pepper and onion to the reserved drippings; cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Return meat to saucepan. Stir in tomatoes, corn, the water, tomato paste, jalapeno peppers, chili powder, sugar, and salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 1 hour or until meat is tender, stirring twice.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare Cornmeal-Cheese Crust. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12x8-inch rectangle. Using a pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut pastry into 8 rectangles. Spoon meat mixture into a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Carefully top with pastry rectangles, overlapping rectangles slightly. Cut slits in top for steam to escape. Bake about 20 minutes or until crust is golden. If desired, sprinkle with cheese and let stand for 5 minutes.

*Tip:

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
