We have some grits lovers in my house and this is a jazzed up way to serve them. Yummy.

This was a keeper! So good and easy to prepare. I am a Northerner, and this was my 1st time making grits. I had some in my pantry like forever and saw some on Food Network and they looked so easy. I found this recipe and the rest is history. I used homemade chicken stock 4 cups and 2 cup water (w. 1 cup grits). I also used green pepper as that is what I had on hand. It all turned out rich and hearty. Spicy and flavorful. So easy too. I will post my photos to share. Thanks for posting and sharing.
