In medium skillet, cook onion until clear, add ground beef and cook until no longer pink; drain.

Stir in salsa, taco seasoning mix and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook for 5-6 min or until mixture is thickened.

Stir in corn and olives. Spoon into ungreased 8 inch square baking dish.

Prepare batter for corn muffin mix according to package directions. (I use recipe on side of corn meal box for corn bread)  Stir in cheese and chiles until smooth; spread over meat mixture. Bake, uncovered, in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 30-35 min or until crust is golden brown.

Top with additional salsa, or sour cream if desired.  Makes 6 servings.
