    Delicious, sweet potato gives a totally different taste.

    This was delicious! The sweet potatoes added a great flavor to the grits. I used sharp cheddar iinstead of Gouda (personal cheese preference), and also added one finely diced jalepeno to the shrimp while cooking. I will definitely be making this again. It was SO good!! I have also made this substituting canned pumpkin for the sweet potato (using the same amount called for), and we liked it even better than with the sweet potato.

    Delicious! We had it for dinner tonight and loved it. It was more spicy than I expected, but not overwhelmingly so. The sweet potatoes were a nice addition to the creamy grits, which were a lovely balance with the spicy shrimp. The only complaint I heard from my family was that there wasn't more. Good thing they didn't find the portion I hid in the back of the fridge to take to work tomorrow for lunch......
