I used to hate grits. Then I moved to Augusta, GA where grits are a staple in every meal it seems. Until then I was unaware of the versatillity of them. I tried them with Tabasco's new chipolte pepper sauce and just before they were finished, I added 3/4 cup shredded chedder cheese and 1/4 cup of chopped green onions. Great!

Yummers! Never made grits before but these turned out creamy and delicious:) I sauteed in a small red onion and finished with grated cheese and pepper. Will be making this again, tx for sharing!
