This is especially for our Vegetarian Zaarites, but anyone would love this. I will have to post the Blackeye salsa separately, so that is what it is called. Look for it. You will LOVE this. This is not an original recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine water, jalapeno chili, cumin and salt in medium saucepan; heat to boiling.
  2. Gradually stir in grits. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 7-8 minutes.
  3. Stir in cheese and Blackeyes.
  4. Spoon grits onto plates, then spoon Blackeye Salsa over grits.

I made this for breakfast and wasn't sure if I would enjoy it so early, but loved it! I made your Recipe#157135 to go with it. YUM! Thanks for a new way to eat grits!

Excellent! This may be my new New Years Day tradition. Served along with recipe #157135 with a pork roast and recipe #48498. Would be an excellent meatless main dish as well. Super easy and quick to fix. Something different that we all loved. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
