Chili Cheese Grits Squares

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by NurseJaney

Found this in a Southern Living of indeterminate age. I NEVER liked grits until I fixed this with roast beef and gravy. NOW -- I pay much more attention to grits recipes, expecially when there is an unexpected, added twist. These go well with ANY beef and/or vegetables, and are just a little different. Times do not include chill time.

I love grits and this was a really tasty twist. They took awhile to make with the cooling time. I tried to cut them a bit early and they fell apart so definately cool completely (we just ate the messed up pieces ahead of time so they didn't go to waste). Thanks for the great side dish.
