      WOW!!! This tasted so good. My husband and I love grits so we decided to try this jazzed up version. Incredible. The peppers make it colorful and very flavorful. The grits had a nice creamy texture. Thanks so much Nurse Di. Your grits recipe is "da bomb"!!

      We LOVED this recipe! I'm so glad I tried something different. I had slices of Monterey Jack cheese so I used four of those. Using Weight Watchers cream this recipe was a total of 31 points. Thank you so much for posting!

      Was looking for a grits recipe just for a change of pace and this is the one I settled on. So glad I did because it was very tasty. I might have cut down on the cheese just a bit because it seemed like a lot, and I used a green pepper instead of yellow because it's what I had. But I'll be making this recipe again.
