Green Chile Grits

Green Chile Grits
By: Cindy Watkins

1 cup grits – Quick grits, not instant
2 cups water
Pinch of salt
½ stick butter
1 cup milk or cream
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese
4 tablespoons green chilies
1 green onion, chopped

Bring water to a boil. Add grits and salt. Turn the heat down to medium or medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes. Please note, grits may become very thick – that’s OK!

Remove from heat and add milk and butter. Next add beaten eggs and stir very well. Stir in cheese, chilies, and green onion. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 glass baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
