Chi-Chi's Corn Cake Mix: Gluten-Free and Yummy!

Chi-Chi's Fiesta Sweet Corn Cake, a mix based on the sweet corn cakes from the now-defunct Chi-Chi's Mexican restaurants, is tasty, sweet, and has never given me tummy troubles.

I use this mix for a carb base for spicy chili or baked beans. With fresh, smashed strawberries and whipped cream, it's a great dessert.

This is a mix, and you add butter, water, and a can of creamed corn to the mix, scrape it into a bread pan, and bake for 45 minutes. I usually bake it at 400F instead of the 350F that the pouch recommends.

BEWARE: Green Giant creamed corn is gluten-free. Del Monte contains modified food starch and is thus suspect. I believe that I had a minor reaction to Del Monte creamed corn.

Where can I buy this product in the north. I buy it at Publix when I am in Florida. I would really like to have some, as I am gluten intollerant.

I'm not sure what you mean by "North," but I find it at "Stop and Shop" here in NY, outside of NYC.

I live right outside Boston and haven't been able to find it in this area. I'll check with the Stop and Shop and see if they will get it for me. Thanks for the feedback.
