  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 1/2 lb cheddar cheese, grated

Directions

Step 1

In a medium pan add a small amount of oil cook the meat about 10 to 15 minutes until brown. Drain and set aside.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, baking soda, and salt. Add eggs and milk and stir until blended. Add the oil and stir well. Then add the drained corn and peppers.

Step 3

Step 4
