Is There Such a Thing as Mexican Grits?

We watch a lot of Food Network around here (as evidenced by our many cooking competitions and other crazy culinary adventures). I'd been craving creamy polenta since watching a contestant make it on one of the shows. We had leftover quesadilla fixin's (beans, tomatoes, cheese, avocado) that would be just as delicious on polenta as they were on corn tortillas.

I prepped everything, then went to grab the polenta. One problem: we didn't have polenta. I totally thought we did, but what I thought was dried polenta was actually dried grits. Close enough! I made the grits, stirred cheese into it, spooned it into bowls and topped it with more cheese, beans, tomatoes, and avocados. 

I don't know if Mexican Grits was already a thing, but as far as I'm concerned, this will be a new staple in the deRosier household. Delicious! 


  1. That looks and sounds totally yummy to me. Big fan of savory grits!

  2. I think it sounds delicious. I don't eat sweet grits, so the savory sounds yummy!

  3. I've never tried polenta or grits...but your looks yummy!
