      Excellent in every way and one I'll make again and again. With very lean meat, this is actually even relatively low calorie while still tasting fabulous! I made this almost exactly as written. The only difference was that I used red pepper since they were on sale, and when I realized I didn't have enough chili powder, I added in just a bit of cayenne pepper (and kind of liked the kick!). The grits part of this recipe helped offset some of the spice, too. As another healthy side, I made this with Lemony Black-Eyed Pea and Cilantro Salad, and I liked them together, but I could see others thinking that it's a little too much flavor all at once. Thank you for sharing such a goodie that is pretty healthy, too!

      Holy Tamale! Good! This waited a long time to be reviewed. I did make a couple of changes. I added 4 ounces cheddar cheese to the meat mixture which helped it stay together. I used creamed corn which worked out great. I used quick Grits. Made it in the microwave using 2 cups of milk to 1/2 cup grits, cooked for 4 minutes then stirred in 4 ounces of cheddar cheese and a diced jalapeno. Oh I also cooked all the pepper at one time along with the onions. Thanks Bergy for a good home cooked meal.

      I used 1 pound of ground turkey and cornmeal instead of grits. My family liked it and I will make it again.

      If someone doesn't like the grit flavor, use corn meal instead. Yellow corn meal would look better but white will do.
