Our Southwestern Green Chile Polenta combines classic polenta with the robust flavors of poblano chiles, jalapenos, tomatillo, cilantro and garlic, adding a unique profile to this easy-to-make instant polenta. Polenta is a hearty, comforting, extremely versatile Italian-style accompaniment to a wide variety of dishes. What's more, since it is simply made from finely ground corn, it is naturally gluten-free.
In Italy, corn is most often served as polenta, a staple dish in Northern Italy. Polenta can carry many different flavors, and as such, offers endless options for variation. It can also be made with either white or yellow corn, and can be ground coarse or fine.
In Italy, polenta with ragu is traditionally served directly on wooden planks, rather than in a bowl or on a plate, harkening back to a time before dishware, when polenta was poured directly onto a well-scrubbed tabletop. This ancient rustic style is called "polenta spianatora," or "polenta spread flat." Putting the polenta in the center of the table meant that those with the longest arms (the adults) reached the best parts of the ragu first. The wooden plank presentation style is still used almost exclusively throughout Italy.
Polenta is a nutritious dish, offering an excellent source of iron and a good source of vitamin A and potassium, along with dietary fiber.
Southwestern Green Chile Polenta is a versatile and deeply flavored blend, great for both side dishes or main courses. Try serving it as a bed for chili con carne, shredded chicken in a green chile sauce, or with grilled meat.
Our expertly seasoned Southwestern Green Chile Polenta makes a delicious base for this hearty breakfast. Serve with salsa, sour cream even warm tortillas.
