  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef with about half of the chopped onion until meat is no longer pink and onion is tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Drain juices and set aside.
  2. Empty packages of cornbread mix into a large bowl. Mix in the milk, eggs and creamed corn until smooth. Fold in the ground beef mixture and pickled jalapenos. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan, and sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the top.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I really loved this recipe! I love cornbread, and this was a great main dish that filled me and my husband up. I used one half water and one half milk for the liquids. I also did not have jalape...

This is a good one! The perfect family meal. I didn't have any jalapenos lying around so I used a 4 oz. can of diced green chilies and it was just right. Even our 1-year-old digs it!

Used about 1/2 a can of green chilies instead of jalapanos as was mentioned here (picky eaters in my family). But prepared it as is otherwise, and EVERYONE raved on and on about it. My sister ...

This is a great hearty meal ! My family loved it ! I did make some changes though, for some flavor. When I cooked the ground beef, I added onion, garlic powder, pepper, a dash of season salt an...
