Seed peppers and cut 5 thin slices from each pepper and reserve. Chop remaining bell peppers (about 1/2 cup each).

Cook pork, sausage, onion and garlic in 4-quart Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until pork is no longer pink; drain. Stir in chopped bell peppers, broth, basil, cilantro and ground red chiles. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir corn, tomato, squash and olives into meat mixture; cook another 15 minutes.

Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Prepare Cornbread Topping. Pour meat mixture into ungreased rectangular baking dish, 13 X 9 X 2-inches, or 3-quart shallow casserole. Pour Corn Bread Topping over meat mixture; carefully spread to cover, sealing to edge of dish.

Arrange reserved bell pepper slices on top. Bake until topping is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
