Reviews for Chili Cheese Grits
"These are delicious! I feed the homeless every week and had some green chili sausage that I served over the grits. It was Yummy and I know the homeless loved these homey, creamy grits!!"
"@Hotfoot4047: Grits are very similar to polenta."
"Delicious! I've made this dish several times. The only change I make is to add an extra clove of garlic."
"PS - this recipe sounds good! I have already printed it off!"
"For Hotfoot - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GritsDo you have something like cream of wheat? Somewhat similar, but a larger texture to the pieces. I had my first grits when I moved to TX back in 1976. I grew to love them!"
