  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth and milk. Bring to a boil over high heat, then turn the heat to low. Slowly whisk in the grits, then cover the saucepan, and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Once the grits have cooked, stir in the salt, pepper, cumin, chipotle peppers, green chiles, and 1 cup of Cheddar cheese until the cheese has melted. Pour the grits into the prepared 9x13 inch dish, and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly, and has begun to brown, 30-45 minutes.

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...

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 ...

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 amoun...
