Recipe for Chilean Hamburg Casserole


1 1/2 lb coarsely ground lean beef
1 cup onion; chopped
1 dried chile pod; crushed
1/4 cup raisins
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 cup fresh corn
1/2 cup tomatoes; chopped
10 black olives; cut in half
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 more black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cup hot mashed potatoes
1 teaspoon paprika


The combination of beef with sugar and raisins may sound a little weird, as well as the olives in the corn mixture but this is a really tasty dish... the flavors DO blend together nicely.

In a heavy skillet, brown the meat. Add the onion and chile; saute with the meat until the onion is limp and translucent. Stir in the raisins, brown sugar, cumin, salt and pepper. Heat thoroughly and set aside.

In a saucepan combine the corn and tomatoes with a little water. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 min. Add olives, oregano and perhaps some more pepper; simmer another 2 minutes.

Assemble a casserole with a bottom layer of the ground beef mixture; then the corn mixture and top with a layer of mashed potatoes. Pat the potato layer down and smooth it. Sprinkle on the paprika and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 25 min or until the top has browned a bit.
