Chile Cheese Grits
This dish results from the collision of two cultures: southern and southwestern. Grits are great when served at a company breakfast or brunch. See our article on Waffles and Grits for Brunch.
Bring the water to a boil, and add the salt and garlic. Slowly stir in the grits, and continue stirring for 4 or 5 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat.
Add the butter, 1 cup of the cheese and green chiles, stirring until butter is completely melted. Beat the eggs with the milk, add to the mixture and mix well.
Pour into a greased 2-quart baking dish and bake, uncovered, in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Makes 6 servings.
