Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 jalapenos, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 cups stone-ground grits
  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken (or beef) broth, plus more if needed
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 cups grated Cheddar
Directions
  • Heat the butter and oil in a pan and add the jalapenos, onions and bell peppers. Cook until softened, 5 minutes or so.

  • Pour in the grits, followed by the broth and 3 cups water. Stir, and then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, and then cover and cook for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Add the half-and-half. Stir, and then cook until the grits are tender, another 20 to 30 minutes. At any time, add more broth if the grits look like they need more cooking liquid.

  • Remove the grits from the heat and stir in the cheese. Serve immediately.
