      Title: Cheese grits w/green chiles (ala ashley)
 Categories: Casserole
      Yield: 8 Servings
 
      6 c  Water
      2 c  Quick-cooking grits;
           -uncooked
      2 ts Salt
      1 ts Paprika
      1 ts Ground red Cayenne pepper
      3 lg Eggs
      4 c  Shredded Munster cheese
      1 c  Mumex green chiles; roasted,
           -peeled and seeded; chopped
 
  I confess I have not tried the above recipe as listed (see "Cheese
  Grits with Green Chiles").  My feeling on reading it was that I would
  prefer a firmer finished product.  Also I like the taste of NM green
  chiles and felt that sharp Cheddar cheese would overpower the chiles.
  I don't use canned chiles, keeping only frozen  NM green chiles on
  hand.  With all this in mind, I changed the recipe as follows:
  
  Prepare as in the first recipe, except place the grit mixture
  directly into greased custard cups instead of a baking dish.  Bake
  the grits as above and let to cool.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  
  When ready to serve, reheat the cups of grits in a mircowave and
  inverted onto dinner plates.  Serve as the starch accompaniment to a
  meal.  Garnish with slivers of roasted red bell pepper or a good
  salsa.  Probably best with grilled meats.
  
  I served the grits with another recipe in the article: Roasted Serrano
  Salsa. I'm very partial to roasted (grilled) vegetables, especially,
  root vegetables and thought this salsa was an excellent accompaniment.
  
  Made with either set of ingredients, the dish is rather tame, although
  tasty.  But then, we all know how to improve on the tame part.
  
  My SO proclaimed, that "This is company food".  An ultimate
  complement for grits from a Vermonter.  I thought it was very good
  and would serve it as an entree accompaniment in a meal served to
  southern guests (UK and AU subscribers read: "guest from the southern
  USA".  Grits are a southern cultural thing, unique to the south.).
   However, I feel that grits' course texture keeps it from being an
  extraordinary dish (Please! ... don't shoot). I'd also increase the
  amount of green chiles.
  
  Notes: A friend recently gave me a copy of an article from Southern
  Living, August 1995, page 73-75 entitled "A Taste of Red Hot
  Success".  It was a brief article on Jean Andrews' new book _Red Hot
  Peppers_ (no bibliography or even ISBN was listed). Three recipes
  were included. The one which caught my southern friend's eye was
  "Cheese Grits with Green Chiles".
  
  For UK, AU and some northern North American List subscribers: grits,
  plural noun (used with a sing. or pl. verb) (1) A ground, usually
  white meal of dried and hulled corn kernels that is boiled and served
  as a breakfast food or side dish. (2) Coarsely ground grain,
  especially corn. May your food be wonderfully pungent,  Lynn. Lynn
