This pie is a layered version of the popular Mexican tamales. Easy to put together for a weekday meal.
In a bowl combine the cornmeal, 1/2 cup cold water, salt, cumin and red pepper. In medium saucepan bring the 1 1/3 cups water to a boil. Slowly add cornmeal mixture; stirring constantly to make sure it does not lump. Return to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower heat and cook for 10 minutes or until very thick, stirring occasionally. Spread the hot cornmeal mixture into a greased 7x12-inch casserole.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet cook the pork, onion and sweet pepper until pork is browned and vegetables tender. Stir in beans, enchilada sauce and olives. Bring to a boil. Spoon the pork mixture over the cornmeal layer in the casserole, cover and bake in a 350 degree F. oven for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle with cheese; bake uncovered for 3 minutes longer or until cheese melts.
