In a large bowl, combine cooked beef, diced tomatoes, corn, olives, onion, and taco seasoning; mix well then pour into a 6-quart slow cooker (lined with slow cooker liner for easy cleanup).
Prepare cornbread mix according to package directions, when spoon over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
Cover and cook on high setting for 3 hours, or on low setting for 6 hours.

I cannot wait to try this. I have made lots of tamale pie dishes in the past (six children!), but with just my husband and I now, I fall back on my crock pot a lot. This will be a hit I'm sure.

I recently broke the crock from my 6 qt slow cooker. Do you think this would work in a 4 qt?

Seasun - it should also work in a 4 qt cooker. Maybe half the recipe....?
