Escape to New Mexico with Melissa's creamy Hatch polenta. With no passport required, this polenta is sure to please any palate. Melissa's Hatch Pepper Polenta is a new flavor offering a nice roasted kick of New Mexico flavor to an Italian staple. Polenta, a popular Northern Italian dish, is a recipe made from thick-ground cornmeal. Melissa's Polenta is pre-cooked and formed into a convenient, sliceable cylinder tube, making it that much easier to enjoy. Because Melissa's Hatch Polenta comes ready-packed in chubs (tubes), it can be easily sliced and warmed on the grill, sautéed in a pan, or roasted in the oven. With that addition of Hatch to the classic polenta recipe, your taste buds can travel from Italy to New Mexico in just one bite.

You could add broth or coconut milk to reconstitute and serve like grits. Melissa's polenta tastes great served with a delicious saucy situation like a fire-roasted salsa verde with melted pepper jack cheese and charred corn. Top with your favorite protein like grilled chicken or slow-braised carnitas to make it a complete meal that the whole family will enjoy.

Polenta is shelf-stable and has a shelf life of up to 3 months. Do not freeze.

Water, Organic Cornmeal, Organic Hatch Pepper Powder, Salt, Yeast Extract, Organic Granulated Onion, and Tartaric Acid.
