This dish is your favorite childhood chili reimagined with an ultra-creamy cornmeal topping. We sprinkled sharp cheddar and popped it all in the oven for a golden finish. To balance the soft poblano heat, we added a refreshing side of romaine hearts. Seasoned with a healthy dose of salt and pepper and our go-to red wine vinegar for a dash of brightness, they’re the perfect cooling match for a warming meal. Cook, relax and enjoy!
