Betty's notes for this recipe:
My family has enjoyed this recipe for years. I usually put the jalapeno slices only on half the pan for those who like the heat. But be sure and mark it, so you'll know which half is hot! It's good with a bowl of pinto beans and a salad.

Hearty, satisfying and full of flavor, this comforting crowd-pleaser would also be a-maz-ing topped with chili.


Heat oven to 425. Spray 13X9 pan with oil.
Brown meat with onion and bell pepper in skillet. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drain and set aside.
Pour half of cornbread batter in pan. Place 6 slices of cheese over batter.
Spread meat over cheese evenly. Add jalapeno slices if desired.
Top with remaining slices of cheese . Pour the rest of the batter on top.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until brown on top. Let cool for about 10 minutes. Enjoy!

I've added peppers before but never considered ground meat. I'll try this with venison this weekend!

It's also good with ground sausage.

Another recipe after my heart, I will have to use low-fat cheese and lean meat to keep my son from complaining...

I've made this for years with ground beef and sausage both are very good..but here's my twist on this recipe I make a gravy to pour over each serving..Mix 1 can cream of celery and 1 can of cream of chicken with 1 can of milk(use the soup can) blend until smooth and consistency of gravy heat until hot and pour over cornbread...ummm good.
