Chipotle Cheese Grits Notes

After moving to the south we discovered what a wonderful thing cheese grits can be. Here we can get locally produced and ground grits. If that is not available the quick variety from the chain grocery stores will work.

  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1 cup grits
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar
  • 3/4 cup grated queso fresco
Serves / Yields

4-6 servings

Preparation Instructions

Combine the water, butter, garlic, salt and chipotle pepper in a pot and bring to a boil. Add the grits and lower the heat. When the mixture thickens add the sour cream and cheese. Slowly let the cheeses melt into the grits. Adjust seasoning and serve warm.
