There must be as many recipes for chili cheese grits as there are people who make them. It is one of those simple dishes where the type of ingredients you use makes a difference. This particular recipe is a family favorite. The only tweaking/updating I have done is to add smoked paprika. Chile cheese grits are delicious served alongside ham, pork chops, or baked chicken. —Waverly
1 1/2 cups

She is teaching them, one meal at a time, to enjoy wholesome homemade food. She abhors processed food but recognizes its insidious nature and accepts the fact that her children will occasionally get some Skittles, Doritos, or the like. Her philosophy and hope is that if she teaches them well at home, they will prefer wholesome healthy foods when they go out into the world without her.
