This is great with any main dish, as a main dish, or for breakfast. If you don't like bell peppers, leave them out; it still tastes great! Season with salt, pepper and hot sauce if you like it extra hot. Hope you enjoy!!

I skipped the green pepper and used onion instead. Just one jalapeño seeded. I felt like this recipe works just fine with about half of the sausage and cheese. The family which doesn t generally eat grits did eat this. I will definitely make this again. Read More

I had a similar dish at a potluck recently but couldn't get the recipe so I started searching based on ingredients. I think this is the one! Turned out great. Substituted fat free evaporated milk for the whipping cream. made one batch with spicy sausage and jalapeños and one batch with mild sausage and mild green chiles. Read More
