How to Make Cheesy Chile Grits

Step-by-Step

  1. In Medium sauce pan, add first 5 ingredients and bring to rolling boil. Add grits and stir 1 minute then reduse heat to simmer and cook 15 minutes covered. Keep close eye on them and stir frequently.
  2. Add milk and combine well. Cook uncovered for 5 minutes. Should have a very creamy texture. Turn off heat and add cheeses and mix well.
  3. Serve as a side dish, or for a complete breakfast serve in bowls with an over-easy egg on top and let yolk run all over it. (This is my personal favorite). ENJOY
