Pepper Jack Skillet Cornbread is the perfect way to kick up a standard barbecue side dish.  Buttery, crispy edges and tender, moist cornbread with just the right amount of spicy flavor.



  • 1 box (8.5 ounces) Jiffy cornbread mix
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 4 ounces (1/2 block) pepper jack cheese, grated
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F with a 10-inch cast iron skillet inside.  In a large bowl, combine the cornbread mix, sour cream, milk, egg and pepper jack cheese.  Whisk until combined.
  2. Remove the skillet from the oven and melt butter.  Pour batter into the hot skillet spreading evenly with a spatula (butter may pool around edges.)
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the center is done and the edges are crispy.
