    This recipe was developed because of the leftovers in the fridge. It was a great way to turn 3 oz of steak into a wonderful meal for 2.

    1. 1
      Bring the 1 1/2 cups water to a boil, whisk in grits and season to taste with salt. When grits return to boil, cover and reduce heat to medium low. Cook for 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      While grits cook prepare the avocado salsa by combining the avocado, onion, pepper and tomato. Sprinkle liberally with lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      When the grits are cooked, remove from heat and stir in cheese and green chili. Cover and allow to rest while cooking the eggs.
    4. 4
      Cook eggs in a lightly seasoned skillet to your liking; i.e., sunny side up, over easy, etc. When finished cooking eggs toss the sliced meat onto the hot pan and toss to just warm.
    5. 5
      To assemble, divide the grits between 2 shallow bowls. Top each with a cooked egg, half the meat and a generous helping of avocado salsa. Sprinkle all with fresh cilantro or parsley if desired and serve.

      We had this for a quick and filling lunch and absolutely loved it. Quickly put together and great to use up left over grilled meat. I used grilled chicken because that's what I had, and a mixture of pecorino cheese and goat's gouda. Not sure about the serrano chili peppers - we don't have many different chili peppers here, so I just used the unspecified red one available in the grocery.
      Thanks for sharing this delicious idea, we'll sure make it again :)

      This made a great dinner! I used green chilies but left out the serrano. I also left the steak out to make this vegetarian. Great mix of flavors and textures. Thanks Paula! Made for Australian Swap March 2013.
