In a large saucepan, combine tomato sauce, corn olives, sugar, chili powder, water, salt and pepper.
Simmer for 20 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, in a skillet, brown ground beef with onion, pepper and garlic.
Drain off fat and stir into thickened sauce.
Add shredded cheese and pour into a 9x13 baking dish.
Make the Cornbread Topping: Whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients over the cornmeal mixture and stir together until barely incorporated.
Pour the cornbread batter over the filling, using a spatula to spread it into an even layer. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
