Nice flavor. A bit hot for my tastes, so I'd add a little less jalapeno.

I loved the grits! So quick and easy to make. You can adjust the heat to your liking. I was going to add a fresh jalapeno as another reviewer did, but didn't have one, so I used the jalapenos from the jar and added a little chopped poblano pepper. Very rich and creamy dish. Thanks for posting!!

These were great. I'm the only one that likes grits in my house, but these reheat well. I used skim milk and 2% cheese and diced 1 whole jalapeno fresh, which adds a nice crunch. Great Job!
