I found this in the Arizona Republic reprinted originally from the Chicago Tribune and thought the combination sounded delightful. When I calculated this recipe out to 8 ponts per serving I was even more thrilled. Tasty and hearty.

I had a slight problem with this recipe. I made the cornbread exactly as written. I let the cornbread cool completely, but it was so moist that it crumbled when I tried to slice it horizontally. I ended up placing the cornbread squares on plates and spooning the barbecue on top. We ate it with forks instead of like sandwiches. This is a great way to use leftover bbq. I liked the addition of the corn, onions and chilies to the cornbread.
