Tomato Cobbler

We had to get approval from Carrie to include this in Carrie's Pie Challenge. Lucky for Rebbekkah, Carrie is a really chilled-out kinda gal and said it was absolutely ok to include this as a pie! However you might categorize it. It sounds delicious. Rebbekkah says, "Adam cut into this before I could snap a pic so I had to cut a “slice” out for the pic. It’s a terrible picture, but I’m telling you it was incredible!!! The crust was awesome! It tasted like a chile relleno. It didn’t call for cheese but I added it because I just felt like it was needed." - 37 Cooks
