Prepare the cornbread ingredients
1 Prepare the cornbread ingredients

Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 400°F. Wash and dry the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Roughly chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling.

Make the batter
2 Make the batter

Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cornbread mix, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Melt half the softened butter in a separate, large bowl in the microwave (or melt in a pot on the stove, then transfer to a large bowl). Add the sour cream, buttermilk, and eggs; whisk to thoroughly combine. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients. Stir until just combined (be careful not to overmix). Carefully stir in the sliced white bottoms of the scallions, half the cheese, and as much of the chopped pepper as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

Bake the cornbread
3 Bake the cornbread

Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer. Top with the remaining cheese. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until set and cooked through (a toothpick inserted should come out with a few moist crumbs). Remove from the oven.

OVEN: Line a sheet pan with foil. Pat the ribs dry with paper towels. Transfer to the sheet pan. Spread the sauce on top of the ribs. Bake 13 to 15 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and slightly thickened and the ribs are heated through.* If desired, turn your oven to the broil function; broil 2 to 4 minutes, or until the sauce starts to caramelize (watching carefully so it doesn’t burn). Transfer to a cutting board.

GRILL: Skip the oven instructions and preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Glaze the ribs as directed and grill for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and slightly thickened and the ribs are heated through.*
