Ingredients


4 cups Chicken Broth
1 tsp salt
1 cup quick-cooking grits
2 Tbsp margarine
Green onions (1 bunch, chopped)
Green Pepper (diced)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound peeled and deveined, small shrimp, tail removed
1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 (10 oz) can Rotel
1/2 tsp black pepper
I used regular Rotel, but added a little Cayenne Pepper for extra spice. You could use Hot Rotel. Works well in a crock pot.


Directions


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x12 inch baking dish.

Bring chicken broth and salt to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Stir in the grits, return to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.

Meanwhile, melt the margarine in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the green onions, green pepper, and garlic; cook until the peppers have softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shrimp, and cook until they begin to firm.

Stir the Monterey Jack cheese, 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese, shrimp and vegetable mixture, canned tomatoes, and black pepper into the grits; pour into prepared baking dish and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese.

Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown, 30 to 45 minutes.
