These spicy, creamy grits are a hit at every family barbeque. People ask me for the recipe every time I make them.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup quick-cooking grits
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 1 ½ cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. 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. 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. 4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly, and has begun to brown, 30-45 minutes.
