Take-out Tuesday, Chili Cheese Grits Super Supper Bowl

Today’s Take-out Tuesday is more of an idea than a recipe

This is a bowl of comfort food heaven!

Meaty chili, cheesy grits, and creamy corn

A spoonful of this, a spoonful of that, or a little of each…

This will make your tummy very happy!

Heat up your favorite chili, canned or homemade

This Loaded Pumpkin Chili is an easy peasy favorite

Next make the grits

I use Jim Dandy Quick Grits,

they’re ready in 5 minutes

then all you have to do is stir in the cheese

and season with salt & pepper

note: make them thick, not runny!

Next heat creamed corn or corn kernels in the microwave

Now slightly tilt a deep soup bowl and add the grits,

then ladle in the chili next to them

Nestle a spoonful of corn between the grits and chili

Garnish with cheese shreds and green onions

    I canโ€™t say I have ever eaten grits… I like your idea of your super bowl. Iโ€™d probably substitute mashed potatoes! ๐Ÿ˜ Your meal looks comforting on a cold day which the temps have been in the single digits this week for us. ๐Ÿงค

    I remember the first time I had grits was in Charleston, years ago. I’d never tried them before, maybe thinking they were too southern or something??!!! But I’m so glad I did, because I’m hooked. What’s funny to me now is that I’d always prepared polenta, which is exactly the same thing! Live and learn. Great meal.

  14. Karen says:

    Chili and grits has been a longtime favorite of mine but you certainly have taken them up a notch as they say. Terrific idea!

  15. What a fun twist on two dishes. This looks great!
