Chili & Gluten-Free Cornbread Recipes for a Super Bowl Feast

Chili & Gluten-Free Cornbread Recipes for a Super Bowl Feast

My friend green Diva Gina was inspired to share her family’s turkey chili and gluten-free cornbread recipes for the impending Super Bowl festivities. Read GD Gina’s original post here.

I’m not a huge football fan, but like a true foodie, for me it is always about creating a yummy and healthy menu of goodies. I’m not sure how or why chili became a standard for Super Bowl Sunday, but we’ve come up with a fun vegan version that everyone loves and looks forward to.

So, here are two chili recipes — one turkey, one vegan — and an awesome gluten-free cornbread recipe (for nutrition details, please visit the original post).

Listen to this fun Green Divas Foodie-Philes podcast to hear the details, and of course the recipes are below!

1 cup millet flour
1 cup rice flour
