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! Read More

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'. Read More

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! Read More

I used 2 prepackaged cornmeal mix them seperate and add one jalepeno to each. Put one mix on the bottom of pan add meat corn and cheese then put the other mix as top layer. Makes a "stuffed" cornbread. My whole family loves it. Read More

This was a good idea but I was running short on time and altered it somewhat. I browned the ground beef with onion and green pepper then added some Spanish Gardens taco sauce. I left this mixture in my ovenproof skillet and topped it with shredded mexican cheese. I mixed up a Jiffy corn muffin mix adding a can of cream corn to it then pouring it over all of the cheese and beef in the skillet. I baked it until the cornbread was done and served with baked sweet potato fries that had been shaken in a ziploc bag with a little veg oil half a packet of taco seasoning and honey. Read More
