I did make 1/2 of the recipe, otherwise prepared as directed by the recipe and enjoyed it. Definitely will repeat this, but will point out that I thought the jalapeno jack cheese was the dominant flavor. Of course since I love it, it was no problem. Loved the consistency and the leftovers will be reheated and enjoyed again. Thanks for a keeper NcMysteryShopper!

I had never made polenta before, and heard lots of cooks rave about it, so my DH and I decided to try it. Personally, we couldn't stand the texture. However the flavor was the only plus of the dish. I guess polenta is not for us. Thanks for your spin of it though.

This is really good! I've never made polenta before so I was a little nervous, but for naught! I made a 1/2 batch and would call it 6 servings, but that's just me! It was a little stringy, so I may reduce the cheese, and add a little chipotle in adobo if I made it again. Thanks, NcMystery. I'm really glad we tried it!

Very good! I used regular jack cheese (don't like the hot stuff) and parmesan. I also used half chicken broth and half water. Would definitely make again. Made for ZWT III.

This was good (polenta always is) but I thought that it would have more of a kick to it. I added jalepenos as well but something just seemed to be missing. Thanks for the recipe though. I will keep it and experiment a bit to our tastes.

This was super simple and the best polenta I have ever had. I'm making it again for the second night in a row!

This is so easy and tastes so good. After it was cooked I poured it into a small tart plate and allowed it to become firm and garnished with additional grated cheese. It was topped with Savory Black-Eyed Peas with Bacon Savory Black-Eyed Peas With Bacon with a side of fresh sliced tomatoes, cornbread and green onions. Really down home taste.

I've never made polenta ...and never tasted it. I followed the recipe apart from the jalapeno jack - not available here so I subbed equal amounts of gouda and cheddar, added two tablespoons of chopped jalepenos. I did as nanc-ob did. After cooling and then cutting into triangles, fried in about a tablespoon of oil.Yummo...totally delicious!!! A great first encounter with polenta!!!!

Comfort food!I made this in the microwave oven using white polenta and added tumeric for color. I enjoyed it my DH didn`t like it! I served it topped with your Shrimp and garlic Gambas Al Ajillo (Shrimp W/ Garlic) Catalonia which he had no problem eating right down!
