Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.
Mince diced jalapeño. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.Place butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, 30-45 seconds.
Make the Cornbread
In a mixing bowl, combine corn muffin mix, 3/4 the shredded cheese (reserve remaining for topping), sour cream, 1 cup water, white portions of green onions, 1/4 tsp. salt, and melted butter until a stiff pancake-like batter forms. If too thick, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.
Pour batter into prepared casserole dish. Don't have an 8" square casserole dish? A 7x10" casserole dish or 9" pie plate will also work. Spread into an even layer. Top with remaining shredded cheese.Bake in hot oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 40-45 minutes.Let baked cornbread cool, 10 minutes.While cornbread bakes, make schmear.
Make Schmear and Finish Dish
In another mixing bowl, combine jalapeño, seasoning blend, and softened cream cheese. Set aside.
Serve-family style, topping cornbread with schmear and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
