Jalapeno Cheese Grits

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Lisa Young

My husband's favorite. We eat this with just about everything, in place of mashed potatoes.

Top Review by Mark H.

Your husband is right, these are MUCH better than mashed potatoes. We had them with dinner, but I think they'd be great with breakfast, too. They are easy to make and even my wife and son, who aren't real big fans of grits, raved about this dish. It will definately be something we have again and again.
