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.
Perfect!!! I've never eaten polenta with anything else but Italian..this is great!! We really enjoyed the flavor! Thank you Cheryl!!
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!
