This cornbread containing meat, cheese, peppers, and other ingredients is a family favorite. It's great alone or with a bowl of beans on the side. You may add extra cheese or peppers to suit your own taste. If making a double batch, use 1 can of whole-kernel corn and 1 can of cream-style corn.

Very Tasty! Here is how I made it: Used Jiffy mix for the cornbread and followed the directions on the box. Added the cream corn to the jiffy mix. Browned and drained the beef. Added a taco seasoning packet to the beef. Put half the cornbread mixture on the bottom of the dish, then added a layer of cheese, then a layer the seasoned beef, then the rest of the cornbread. Cook for 30 minutes, add cheese and cook for another 10. My family loved it!

This recipe was excellent the first time I made it as is. The second time I made the cornbread as directed but added chopped onions, a bit of jalapeno, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and thyme to the ground beef as it cooked. I just spooned the ground beef on top of the cornbread mixture and topped with cheddar cheese before 5 minutes before removing from oven. Heavenly!!! Serve with a green veggie on the side and make this an entree'.

I like this a lot. I fried the onion and pepper with the ground beef and used lots more cheese. 60 minutes did make it quite brown, so I can see why the other reviewer pulled it after 50, but I like it crispy. I topped it with sour cream served it as a main dish. I don't usually have fresh jalepenos on hand, so next time I'll probably use canned green chiles. A winner!
