Southwestern Grits

A great brunch or dinner dish from my favorite Galveston-area church cookbook. I use Amazing Taco Seasoning for the taco seasoning.

I scaled this down and used some cooked chard I had leftover. Loved it! I didn't have Monterey Jack so used some Mexican farmers cheese. Thanks for a great breakfast!
