Loved this recipe. The only change I made was adding 1/2 - 3/4 cup of sour cream to the meat mixture. It made it creamy and yummy. I will definitely make this recipe again.

This was ok. My kids liked it, but Dad and I were a little "meh" about it. One box of jiffy mix doesn't make enough batter to cover an 8x8 pan, so the bread part was very thin.

Pretty darn good! I used regular salsa instead of picante because that's all we had and even my picky 6-yr old who won't touch anything spicy loved it. Was a nice mix of sweet and tangy with the cornbread and the salsa mix. Everyone cleared their plate and went for seconds. It was very good.

This was great comfort food on a cold night, it really warmed us up and "hit the spot" as we say here in Texas. I don't agree the comment at the beginning of this recipe that it would go well with with a grilling menu or to take on a picnic. I had to substitute diced tomatoes for the tomato sauce, but it still came out great. I also added a chopped onion to the meat as it was cooking. This dish was substantial, filling, and had a zesty taste that totally obscured the fact that it was 'plain old' ground beef. Even my kids liked it. You could even add more shredded cheese if you are a cheese person. You should try it. I will definitely make this again.

Made this for a qiuck supper and it was wonderful.I doubled the recipe and my family at every last bite. Next time I may add cheese to the cornbread mix and maybe some onions and peppers to the hamnurger. Overall an excellent and fast supper.

Excellent! I used a can of El Pato tomato sauce to spice it up a bit. My family loved it!!!!

This was quick and tasty. I read the other reviews which were very helpful. I reduced the tomato sauce and also used salsa. 1/2 tomato sauce and 1/2 cup salsa. Make sure you use a good cornbread mix. I was disappointed in the new one I tried. Anyone have a good corn bread mix?

My husband and I love this recipe. We add a bell pepper and black beans to it and it makes a very filling meal.
