Gluten-Free Green Chile Cornbread Mix
Our Gluten-Free Green Chile Cornbread Mix gets its pleasant heat from green Anaheim Chiles and its slight sweetness from our Freeze-Dried Sweet Corn. Essential ingredients like baking powder, rice flour and sugar complete the mix and make gluten-free cornbread both quick and easy.
Beat 3 tablespoons melted butter with 1 egg and 3/4 cup water or milk. Stir in 1-1/3 cup Gluten-Free Green Chile Cornbread and mix until thoroughly combined. Bake in 10- or 12-inch cast iron skillet preheated in a 400°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

Our Gluten-Free Green Chile Cornbread Mix is the perfect balance of sweet and heat. Freeze-dried sweet corn kernels and diced Anaheim chiles mixed throughout bring added texture and flavor, while the base ingredients of polenta and rice flour give the cornbread body and structure.
Essential ingredients such as baking powder, sugar and potato starch are blended into the mix for added convenience and quicker preparation. Also included is a precisely calculated amount of xanthan gum, an ingredient that performs the structural role that well-developed gluten does in wheat-based dough and batter.
Baking without gluten creates the need for a replacement structural element, usually xanthan gum or guar gum, as gluten’s function in baking is primarily structural. Its network of interconnected protein strands is instrumental in capturing the gases created by leavening agents like baking powder or soda.
Gluten’s protein strands are formed when water is added to wheat flour, allowing the glutenin and gliadin proteins to combine. These strands then begin to trap the gases released by the leavening agent, allowing the dough to rise.
