Chipotle Cheese Grits

Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapeños that are often sold packed in adobo sauce, a thick purée of tomatoes, onions, garlic and vinegar.


3 cups water
3/4 cup quick-cooking grits
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (4-oz) shredded extra-sharp white Cheddar cheese
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, mashed


  1. Boil water; add grits and salt.
  2. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 5 minutes, stirring twice.
  3. Once thickened, remove from heat and stir in cheese and pepper.
