Gluten Free Chili Cobbler

Gluten Free Chili and Polenta Cobbler Recipe

Even here in Florida the evenings are starting to cool down. Which means my mind (and appetite) start to gravitate towards hearty comfort food, like my Gluten Free Chili and Polenta Cobbler Recipe.

One of my all-time favorite comfort foods is chili. It’s casual and tasty, easy to make, and oh-so easy to eat.

I decided to dress up one of my favorite chili recipes and turn it into a cobbler of sorts by topping the chili with slices of polenta and finishing it off in the oven. Kind of like chili with cornbread but all in one dish.

Ancient Harvest has come out with a gluten free polenta in a tube and I could not be happier! Polenta in a tube was a staple in my house before going gluten free – so many uses and such a great time saver.

For this recipe I used the Quinoa Polenta – traditional polenta combined with red and black quinoa which adds nice texture. Their green chili and cilantro flavor would be perfect too!

As the nights get cooler and longer, there is nothing like some really tasty chili to warm you up – body and soul.
