Pie: Sauté onion, ground beef and bell pepper until beef loses red color and
onion is clear.
Drain well and add the corn and tomato sauce. Simmer until thick.
Pour into an 11 x 7-inch or 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
Masa Topping: Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir just until blended.
Spoon topping in large dollops over the filling.
Bake at 400 degrees F for about 45 to 55 minutes, or until filling is bubbly
in the center and topping is well browned. During the last 5 to 10 minutes of baking,
you can sprinkle lots of shredded cheese (Monterey jack or Cheddar) over the top
and let the cheese melt as the Tamale Pie finishes baking.
