spicy fiesta tomato cobbler

As a very wise boy band from the UK once said, “You can’t buy me love.”

However, you are more than welcome to try to bribe it out of me with a piping hot savory tomato cobbler that’s littered with juicy bits of sweet corn, caramelized onions, and a cheesy biscuit topping.

As it turns out, I am easily influenced manipulated by good food. Who’dda thunk it?


What we’re really talking about is NEIGHBOR PROBLEMS.

I, personally, don’t have them but one of my coworkers has a woman who lives down the hall from her who is offended by the high-pitched voices of two year olds and makes it a point to come over to inform my coworker of this whenever she has her nieces and nephews over on the weekends.

As if two year olds were actually silence-able outside of stuffing them with Benadryl and putting them down for a nap.

Delusions of grandeur. That’s what those are.


This woman obviously needs a hobby, or for someone to come a-knocking on her door with a large pan of this cobbler and a note that says “peace be with you”. Partly because she’ll be so preoccupied with shoving it into her mouth as quickly as possible that she won’t even be paying attention to any noises coming from down the hall, and partly because you just can’t stay mad at someone who brings you still-warm cobbler.

That’s basically a life rule.

At least in my world.


So when Anolon asked me to participate in their #GoCook campaign and create a recipe that would be perfect for toting along to a neighborhood potluck, I immediately thought of this scenario. And thus, this cobbler was born.

Cherry tomatoes taste like candy right now, so even though this is technically a savory cobbler, it definitely has some sweet notes that deepen and accumulate as the tomatoes, corn, and caramelized onions roast and kind of melt into each other after a stint in the oven. Topped off with buttery, cheesy biscuits, you end up with a hit of savory in every bite while still maintaining the sweet fresh flavors of summer. For the recipe, head on over to Anolon’s site: SPICY FIESTA TOMATO COBBLER.

I made this cobbler in Anolon’s Advanced Bronze Nonstick 3.5-Quart Covered Chef’s Casserole, which can go from stove to oven, and is oven safe up to 400F. It was great for cooking, heated evenly, and maintained it’s heat long after it was removed from the oven, which is perfect if you’re bringing it to a summer potluck. And the nonstick surface made it super easy to clean, which is always a plus when you don’t own a dishwasher. Ahem.

Even from just cooking with this one pan, I can tell that Anolon’s Advanced Bronze line is quality stuff. If you’re in the market for a new set, for the whole month of August, you can get an extra 20% off open stock items at Bed Bath & Beyond. In addition, Anolon has offered to GIVEAWAY an Advanced Bronze 11-Piece Cookware Set to one of my readers!  See below for details.

    As usual, you’ve showcased the giveaway with an AMAZING RECIPE!!!!

  2. cori says:

    I love making bacon wrapped dates and bringing them in an oven/grill safe pan to heat up at the party. Good serving dish too.

  3. Liz says:

    I usually bring dessert to potlucks so brownies, cookies, mini-cakes; that’s me!

  4. Jenny says:

    I like bringing dishes that feature veggies (roasted veggies, a stirfry, a fancy salad, etc), because everyone else seems to always bring carbs/meat!

  5. I love to bring a big platter of chocolate covered coconut macaroons to a potluck. That’s a show stopper! What a great idea for a savory cobbler. Love this story along with this post Joanne. <3

  6. Johanna GGG says:

    sounds delicious – all those summer vegies really make me want to be in new york – we are getting to the time of year when vegies just get a bit sad – even sylvia has gone off tomatoes because they are out of season.

  7. What a cool dish! I’ve never tried making a savory cobbler but it sounds awesome. 🙂

  8. You can bribe me with this cobbler ANY day;-) And my favorite potluck contribution is always cookies, duh:-)

  9. Gorgeous dish! I think this is a perfect potluck contribution! I usually bring a dessert to a potluck – people seem to expect it from me now 🙂

  10. I can be bribed with this cobbler as well. Fantastic recipe Joanne. Love it.

  11. Sues says:

    This is such a beautiful dish! And so, so summery. I’m in love!

  12. Shoshana says:

    I love bringing some kind of bean and vegetable salad. People are always happy to see that they have a healthy option!

  13. Sara Leigh says:

    This recipe looks delicious, and I just happen to have all the essential ingredients on hand!

  14. Cassie says:

    This is fabulous, Joanne! I love the spices and the veggie combo. And the biscuits on top are genius!

  15. Emma says:

    Ok this looks amazing and will be happening in my kitchen for sure. YUM!!!

  16. court says:

    I love bringing a colorful veggie salad and apple pie!

  17. Topped with cheesy biscuits? SWOON. I’m definitely bribeable into love via food. Especially when cheese and carbs are involved. (I’ve clearly fallen in love with every pizza delivery man who’s ever knocked on my door).

    I’d LIKE to bring desserts to pot lucks because then I can try out crazy tasty recipes without eating a whole batch, but I normally have to go for something substantial, because it’s a rarity that anyone else brings something vegetarian. My boyfriend’s family puts ham in literally everything.

  18. Trisha says:

    I’m dying over this pretty fresh produce and those cheddar biscuits on top. This would be the perfect thing to bring to a potluck, but I think I might make it for my in-laws this week!

  19. Deirdre says:

    Spinach dip in a sourdough bread bowl!

  20. Laura W. says:

    Any kind of grain salad is my favorite contribution!

  21. Girl, this looks incredible! Can you bring this to my house?! My favorite potluck dish to bring is dessert – for obvious reasons – usually a pie or cookies!

  22. Kim Henrichs says:

    My favorite pot luck dish is usually watermelon balls! 🙂

  23. Tomato cobbler is on my to-make list for the summer and now is the time since my cherry tomato plants are going wild! Love that you spiced this one up with chipotle. Now I just need to wait until someone crabby enters my life so I can share with them. 🙂

  24. Katherine says:

    Cowboy caviar is always a hit! I also love bringing brownies or other easy to transport and serve desserts.

  25. ali says:

    guacamole is always a hit!

  26. Marina says:

    My favorite potluck dish is probably a yummy pasta dish with homemade sauce 🙂

  27. Alicia J. says:

    Trisha Yearwood’s chicken pie. So easy and yummy.

  28. I have the biggest bowl of cherry tomatoes in my house right now. This fiesta tomato cobbler would be perfect!

  29. You are right indeed – I could never be mad at someone who brought me this – they could have 20 kids screaming and yelling while I stuffed myself silly with mouthful after mouthful – I need to look for chipotle chili powder now!
    Thanks for this giveaway Joanne! I think my favorite pot luck dish is a pan of brownies.

  30. SallyBR says:

    I am not the luckiest person when it comes to giveaways, but here I am to say I would offer a nice home to this pans….

  32. Kat says:

    Love to bring a salad of some sort. Thanks for the giveaway.

  33. Meg says:

    This looks so delicious — and I happen to have all the ingredients for the filling at home right. now. That never, ever happens to me. So I’ll be giving this a whirl very shortly, though maybe with cornbread? I don’t know. I get crazy sometimes. 🙂

    My go-to potluck dish is definitely pistachio fluff salad (pistachio Jell-o mix, canned pineapple, canned fruit, maraschino cherries, marshmallows and defrosted Cool Whip stirred together until delectable), but I’m trying to branch out. I could see this being a hit!

  34. Ilene says:

    I make a great bean dip.

  35. Katie says:

    I have a huge sweet tooth, so I usually bring dessert ( brownies, cookies, lemon bars). Gotta make sure there’s some good dessert there 😉

  36. Linda Lake says:

    I like to bring a pot of macaroni and cheese with a very sharp cheddar cheese

  37. Cowboy Beans. Three or four kinds of beans in a sweet BBQ sauce, usually with some kind of sausage. I never have leftovers when I bring that!

  38. Heather B says:

    For potlucks I always make the desserts and my signature dish is a Caramel and Oreo Poke Cake.

  39. This looks amazing! Definitely adding it to my recipe collection.

    I tend to bring desserts to potluck parties – anything that can be individual servings, like cookies or brownies. But, being vegetarian, I also end up bringing a veggie main that I, and anyone else, can enjoy.

  40. karen says:

    I like to bring deviled eggs – people get so excited by them!

  41. Gorgeous summer tomato dish! I can’t get enough of them!

  47. Joanne the idea of makig a savoury cobbler is amazing. Loved the cheese biscuits 🙂

    This looks great! Unfortunately, our corn on the cob always gets eaten before I could use it in a recipe. 🙂

  49. danielle says:

    This cobbler sounds great!

  50. Emily L says:

    I always bring salad and a dessert to a potluck. I’ve been bringing this nectarine, tomato & burrata salad this summer and everyone has been loving it!

  51. This cobbler looks healthy and scrumptious!

  52. Julia says:

    Let me know where the next potluck is and I’ll crash it for the chance to eat some of this delicioso cobbler! What a fabulous giveaway – that cookware looks wonderful!

  53. Wow this looks good. Man, like you can tell a 2 year old to be quiet. Ha ha!! I have a two year old.

  54. Kathleen says:

    I am definitely making this! And I definitely want those pots and pans!

  55. Cair says:

    I want this now. Looks incredible.

  56. I love to bring sweets to a potluck…of course! A good old fashioned Southern Dump Cake is always a favorite 😉

  57. Renae says:

    When I go to a potluck I always bring a pie!!!

  58. Barbara says:

    Your tomato dish looks fabulous, Joanne. Love those biscuits! (Best part of any soup or stew, I’ve always thought.)
    I like to bring my mother’s 7Up pound cake and her pickled beet salad to picnics.

  59. Teri K says:

    My easy peasy bread pudding.

  60. Dorca Mateo says:

    I like quiche.

  61. Kim says:

  64. Juli says:

    I had a ton of corn and cabbage in my CSA box and so made a great fresh slaw for a potluck on Saturday.

  65. Kari M says:

    I love to do a dessert – maybe a pan of brownies or bars.

  67. You always pair the most interesting flavor profiles together—yum, Jo!

  68. Whitney says:

    I always bring an Oreo layer cake and rarely come home with leftovers.

  69. Kate says:

    My favorite potluck dish is guacamole and chips. It’s easy, transports well, and most people are at least a fan of chips.

  70. Tina says:

    You have the best giveaways. And stories. And recipes!

  71. Pam says:

    You could buy my love with this beautiful and delicious cobbler… oh and your awesome giveaway too. 🙂

  72. Lynn says:

    That cobbler is a beautiful thing.

  73. P says:

    Maybe you should personally deliver this to your co-worker’s neighbors—she’ll be too busy enjoying this, for sure, to notice any two-year olds running about :P!

  74. Stephanie K says:

    I like to take brownies

  75. Susan says:

    Oh my, that looks delicious and I have a whole crop of tomatoes waiting to ripen. I can’t wait to try it!

  76. Angie Jerde says:

    My go-to potluck dish to bring is either a fruit or veggie bowl with dip. It is a easy and healthy option you can’t go wrong with. But no pot luck would be complete without a deviled egg..that’s my fav!

  77. Woaaa – this spicy fiesta tomato cobbler is my dream. I really need to date you! Orrr… I’ll come pick up leftovers?

  78. Eileen says:

    This cobbler sounds like such a great way to cram your face with summer tomatoes! I am going to pass on the giveaway, as we have a good 20 pots and pans in the house already, but good luck to everyone else!

  79. You could totally bribe me with this savory cobbler! I’ve never tried making one, but it looks fantatic! All those juicy tomatoes, corn, and caramelized onions, topped with cheesy biscuits…oh I could definitely be bribed!

  80. If you saw my post today you’d know it was raining tomatoes in our garden so this cobbler is a great idea!

  81. alyssa says:

    This is a perfect potluck dish and so colorful!

  82. lindsey l. says:

    I don’t have a standby dish, really. Quiche sometimes, or hummus or cucumber/tomato/mozzarella skewers. Thanks for the giveaway!

    My wife enjoys cooking almost everyday, so she would love if I won this prize for her.

    I love her spaghetti and meatballs!

  92. As usual Joanne this is an amazing giveaway !! We love to bring our mom’s mashed potato pie for pot luck along with a dessert like homemade cookies.

  93. Sarah says:

    For a brunch, a spinach and cheese strata. Always a hit!

  94. Deairdre Miller says:

    Bacon Jalapeno poppers, scalloped potatoes, or mustard braised rabbit. Depends on the type of potluck and what letter they picked for work.

  95. As always Joanne another yummy recipe. I love the colors in this one. Great job!

  96. jacquie says:


  97. OH my gosh, what a delicious cobbler 😀
    A must try!

    Choc Chip Uru

  98. Oh goodness. Imagine if her coworker also brought a dog into work who barked all day long. That woman might quit her job. And then everyone wins! In other news, this cobbler is SO smart. I want!

  99. Danguole says:

    Neighbors, man!

    I’d forgive basically any neighborly transgression if this showed up on my doorstep. You knocked this out of the park, Joanne!

  100. Madeline says:

    I love chili, or a watermelon-feta salad!

  101. Great giveaway and recipe. I have lots of tomatoes on hand and this would be so perfect for dinner. Thanks!

  102. I love making a big kale salad with roasted butternut squash and red bell pepper for something healthy and some homemade peanut butter cups for something sweet!

  103. This dish could be the solution not only to neighbourhood dramas, but I suspect dramas of all varieties. The top picture has me convinced I would love it!

  104. Kelly says:

    Wow, this savory cobbler looks incredible! Mmm with all those juicy tomatoes, corn, and caramelized onions…you could totally bribe me with this any day 🙂

  105. This is one gorgeous cobbler! I have SO gotta hop on board with the whole “savory cobbler” ‘thang. I think I’ll start with this one. 🙂 I have so many cherry tomatoes that need to be used up so this is the perfect way to do it!

  106. Shannon says:

    in the summer? a massaged kale salad with corn, tomatoes, and avocado 🙂

  107. Hannah says:

    Big platter of antipasto.

    Black bean, mango, avocado and corn salad!! : )

  110. julianne says:

    i make an avocado potato salad that is always a hit!

  111. Lindsay Lee says:

    Chicken Ranch Pasta!

  112. KarenV says:

    We grow lots of tomatoes. If we need to bring something to a potluck during tomato season, we usually bring Caprese Salad. However, I would be more than willing to bring this dish!

  113. Lauren S. says:

    Looks delicious. I always bribe my neighbors with food, it seems to be working so far lol.

  114. Chantal says:

    I usually bring brussels sprouts with bacon. I’m not used to making large portions of things, I find it intimidating, and brussels sprouts with bacon is pretty simple. You can’t go wrong with bacon!

  115. Reeni says:

    This is lovely and unique! It would definitely work on complaining neighbors! Just shove one of them biscuits in their face and instant friends for life. Or better yet, since we’re already friends, just shove it in my face. 😉

  116. This cobbler is life! That neighbour sounds like my neighbour across the street BEFORE she tasted my food. Food is the cure!

  117. I always want to bring dessert or salad…sooooo…either end of the spectrum there! 😉

  118. Isadora says:

    Such a great giveaway, Joanne! I made tomato cobbler for the first time a few years ago and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since! It is kinda sweet, but mostly savory at the same time and pretty much the best thing ever!!

  119. Mandy says:

    My favorite potluck dish has got to be mashed potatoes. Bonus points if they’re garlic mashed potatoes! Or even potato salad. Yum!

    I just really like potatoes. Can’t go wrong at a potluck.

  120. i like bringing potato salad or dessert!

  121. Joanna says:

    Looks amazing!!

  131. Donna A says:

    My favorite potluck dish has always been broccoli casserole.

  132. Roz says:

    Always expected at potlucks that I enjoy bringing is my “Pasta Fagiole Casserole” that we lovingly call “Pasta for Fools” because of the way that we foolishly go nuts and devour this outstanding dish! Thank you for this giveaway opportunity!
    Mangia, Roz

  133. This is basically ALL OF MY FAVORITE THINGS. Amazing, Joanne! Your coworker’s neighbor sounds like one I know who yells at their neighbor kids IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY for having the audacity to laugh and play. Evil! 😉

  134. Cair says:

    Joanne, I love this cobbler and it was the hit of the fourth of July buffet. I’ve been known to make just the filling as a pretty easy, darn good side dish, too.

    I have a question though, the recipe calls for 2 TBSP of baking powder which seems like a lot – similar whole wheat flour biscuits seem to call for 1 TBSP or less, so I end up running scared and just using 1 TBSP. Am I missing part of the biscuit’s deliciousness by halving the baking powder?

    • joanne says:

      I’m so glad you and your family enjoyed it!! The recipe really does call for 2 tbsp baking powder. That should help to give it some extra rising power against the weight of the cheese. You could always try out the biscuit recipe alone just to test it for yourself, but they were delicious with 2 tbsp in my hands!
