1 (4 ounce) can

1 1/2 cups

I made this last night to go with a rotisserie chicken and mesquite chicken wings from Costco. The grits were amazing! The smokey flavor of the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce adds a nice "kick" to it. You can adjust the spice level of the dish by increasing or decreasing the amount of peppers. You should be able to find the peppers (canned) in the Mexican aisle of your supermarket. These grits were wonderful, easy to make, and I'm having them with my lunch again today. This is a keeper!
Delicious! The only grits I've ever had before were from a breakfast place and they tasted like flavorless goo. :) Needless to say, I've never been to thrilled with them. I finally decided to find a recipe, and see what kind of flavor grits can have. I'm so glad to have found this recipe! I followed the reviewer recommendations of cutting back on the salt (I used 1 tsp instead of 2) and I used 1 tsp of cumin instead of 1tbsp. I also used 2 chipotle peppers instead of 4 and 'mild' green chilies. So good, so creamy, so cheesy! I think you could easily omit the baking step. They were just as tasty right out of the pot. A perfect blend of flavors. I served these with smoked pulled pork and corn from my garden. A keeper!
great if you cut the salt in half! also, next time i'll eliminate the last step.
quite spicy, but good
Good grits. The cumin was a bit overpowering though. I will make these again but use less cumin and maybe add a little salsa or chopped tomatos.
I enjoyed this recipe very much. It may have been a touch spicy and a bit too salty so next time I make this I will decrease the chipotles to 3 and the salt to 1 tsp. I will definately make this again.
It's so tasty! I like this new take on grits. Really liked the heat. I did take down on the chipotle, cheddar, and took out the chilies altogether. And I didn't bake the grits. It is truly delicious!
Really tasty grits, just cut back on the salt and cumin (I cut both down to about 1/2 the stated amount) and adjust the amount of chipotle to your liking; I love spice so I used the entire amount called for. Not sure its necessary to have the green chilies when there's already so much going on, next time I'll leave them for another dish. Thanks for sharing, this is a great way to enjoy grits!
