  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crisp and browned, about 3 minutes per side. Drain bacon slices on paper towels and chop when cool enough to handle.

  • Add bell peppers to the bacon grease. Add shrimp and taco seasoning. Cook and stir until peppers are heated through and shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in chopped bacon.

  • Place a dollop of grits in each bowl and top with shrimp mixture and hot sauce.

Cook's Note:

You can use fresh shrimp if you'd like.

Evaporated milk in grits taste terrible!!! I had to remake the grits. You can substitute the evaporated milk with water or more chicken broth and the recipe turns out great. Read More

Made it to the recipe, other than frozen bell peppers. Grits were like paste, or peanut butter. Definitely not gonna waste money on this one again. Read More
