Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; pour cornmeal onto sheet and, using a spatula, spread in an even layer, about 1/2-inch thick.
Allow to cool; cut into 2 1/2-inch squares and set aside.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In 10-inch skillet heat oil; add onions and garlic and saute until onions are translucent, about 2 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients except cornmeal, cheese, and sour cream and cook, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes to blend flavors.
In bottom of a 2-quart casserole arrange a layer of half of the cornmeal squares; top with meat mixture, then 2 ounces cheese, then sour cream, then remaining cornmeal squares.
Sprinkle remaining 2 ounces cheese over cornmeal and bake until cheese is thoroughly melted, about 20 minutes.
