Perfect Recipe for Cinco De Mayo!! How 'bout Tamale Pie?

Here is a great recipe my kids like, Tamale Pie:

Shopping List:

1/2 lb. superlean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper (this is what the recipe calls for, however, I usually use a red bell pepper)
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
15 oz. can tomato sauce
16 oz. can kidney beans
3/4 cup corn kernels, drained
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
4 low fat corn tortillas
3/4 cup nonfat shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add beef, onions, bell pepper, and garlic powder to skillet and mix lightly. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until beef is browned and cooked through. Drain liquid from skillet and remove from burner. Add tomato sauce, beans, corn, chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper to skillet and mix well. Spray 1 1/2 quart casserole with cooking spray. Spread one quarter beef mixture over bottom of casserole; top with corn tortilla or tortillas to cover. Repeat process, ending with beef and bean mixture on top. Sprinkle cheese over top and bake 40 to 45 minutes until bubbly and hot.
