Jalapeño Cheddar Grits

Updated: Apr 14, 2020

This is our absolute favorite way to prepare our stoneground grits.

Recipe makes 6 servings.

1/4 cup minced onion

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 stick of butter

4 ounces chopped jalapeño peppers, or roasted green chiles, diced

1 1/4 cup chicken broth

1/2 heavy cream

1/2 cup of milk

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup Heritage Virginia Stoneground Grits (Any color will do!)

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Melt the butter in a saucepan; add onion and stir until translucent.

Add the garlic and cook until golden.

Add the pepper and cook briefly.

Pour in the chicken broth, cream, and milk and bring to a simmer.

Whisk in the grits, salt, and pepper. Cover and return to a simmer being careful not to let it boil over. Simmer for about 30/45 minutes, stirring occasionally until the grits are soft.

The best part! Fold in the cheese and serve!

Some the most delicious grits you will ever taste! If you make this recipe let us know what you think.

Happy eating!
