  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, add cornbread mix, milk, and eggs. Mix until fully combined. Pour into a greased cast-iron skillet or any oven-safe dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  3. Add sour cream, avocado, salt, pepper, and lime juice to a food processor. Blend until smooth. Set aside.
  4. Using the back of a wooden spoon, poke holes in the cornbread. Pour BBQ sauce over bread and spread it around, so the sauce gets into the holes. Top with chicken and cheese.
  5. Broil for 5 minutes, or until cheese is fully melted and slightly browned. Remove from the oven.
  6. Serve with avocado cream sauce, garnish with chopped cilantro and enjoy!
