Preheat oven to 350°F. Peel and finely dice onion. Roughly chop the cilantro. Combine half of the red onion with cilantro. In a large bowl, whisk together cornbread mix, corn, egg, 1¼ cups water, and ¼ cup canola oil. Set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan on high for one minute. Add the ground beef, salt, and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes breaking up any large chunks of meat. Add in the remaining diced onion and cook for another 5-6 minutes or until meat is browned.* Stir in salsa and cook for an additional minute.
Pour the meat mixture into a baking dish. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese and spread cornbread mixture on top in a thin layer. Place in oven and cook for 30 minutes. Prick cornbread layer with a toothpick or paring knife and if comes out clean, its ready.
Remove from oven, slice into pieces and top with sour cream and the cilantro onion mixture.
*For food safety, cook ground beef to an internal temperature of 160°F.
