READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place a large (11-12”) cast iron over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, swirl to coat, and add ground beef. Season generously with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to color, about 5 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper and season again with salt and pepper. Continue to cook until softened, and turning golden on the edges, about 7 minutes more. Add chile powder, cumin, and garlic, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add corn, black beans, and tomatoes. Let cook an additional 5 minutes and add cilantro. Stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk to combine cornbread mix, egg, and milk. Pour on top of vegetable-bean mixture. Spread in an even layer (it’s okay if some of the filling pokes through the cornbread batter), drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and transfer to oven. Cook until golden on the edges and bubbling, about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Serve warm or at room temperature, with sour cream and cilantro.
