When it comes to any recipe that has the world “Spicy” in it, I am usually not interested. This is the sort of recipe I would not be interested in making. Coming from the North, I never had a taste of anything from the south (ie: grits!). My husband’s coworker gave him this recipe and insisted he would love it. I was really hesitant. But to my dismay, it was delicious and spicy! So I really didn’t eat that much at all. I recently made it again using kielbasa and my husband said it wasn’t nearly as spicy and he liked it better. This is obviously not a figure friendly dish with the grits calling for so much butter & milk, but they were very tasty!
