Ingredients

8 oz
shredded velveta (comes in a bag)
16 oz
sharp cheddar cheese shredded
1 1/4 c
milk
2 c
water
1 c
quick cook grits
1 can(s)
rotel
1 1/2 Tbsp
butter
1 tsp
salt
1 1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat Oven To 350. In a saucepan, bring the water and milk to a boil. Add the salt and slowly add the grits and return to a boil, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Reduce the heat, cover, and cook for 3 minutes. While stirring the grits add the butter and stir until butter is melted. Cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the grits are thick and creamy. Remove from heat and set aside.
2
Using a skillet, saute the onions in the remaining tablespoon of butter for 1 minute. Add the garlic Powder, 1/2 of the cheddar, all of the Velvetta and onions to grits, and stir until the cheese is melted. Add the tomatoes and mix well. Pour the grits into a greased 8x11x2-inch casserole and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the casserole for the last 5 minutes of cooking time.

For a "One Dish Casserole" I add Ground Sausage or Chopped Chicken Breast.
