This was very tasty! I used homemade barbecue sauce (One Shot Smokin', Huntin' and Fishin' Outdoor Cookin' Sauce!). The only thing I really changed was to cook the onions and peppers with the beef (and I used yellow & orange peppers as I had some already chopped in the freezer). As there was a lot of meat I decided to use a 13x9 pan (since you didn't specify) and when I started to add the cornbread I was afraid this might end up a disaster because there wasn't enough batter to cover the meat, so it was kind-of cornbread "dumplings". Fortunately after baking it puffed up some and covered most of it. This would be good with less meat and some beans added but it was good as is too! Oh, also, for anyone that is wondering, the muffin mix calls for 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk (I used buttermilk as I had it on hand). Thanks for sharing!
