Makes 10 to 12 servings


Creamy cheese grits and succulent shrimp make a devine casserole. Don't expect leftovers because your guests are certain to ask for seconds—maybe even thirds!

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 4 cups chicken broth and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil in a large saucepan; stir in grits. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes.

Step 2

Stir together grits, 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese.

Step 3

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add green onions, bell pepper, and garlic, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender.

Step 4

Stir together green onion mixture, grits mixture, shrimp, and next 3 ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle top with remaining 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 30 to 45 minutes.

This was REALLY good -- and I don't even like grits! (I made it mostly for my husband.) At the last minute, I left out the Rotel -- it just didn't feel right, putting tomatoes in -- and chopped up two jalapenos instead. Yum! I will definitely make it again. The only complaint I have is with the number of servings -- 10 to 12? Really? I think we might get six if we restrain ourselves.

This was awesome! I also used Rotel, and I sauteed my shrimp first in a little olive oil, squeezed some lemon juice, and spirinkled on the Tony's seasoning. Tastes even better the next day. Served in a martini glass for a pretty presentation. Served mine with salad and breadsticks and was well received. Loved it!!!!!!!

One of our favorites! Has become a standard to share each year at Thanksgiving!

My husband and I really enjoyed this dish and it was pretty easy for a weeknight meal. I did end up adding two cans of Rotel instead of one, but wonder if this is what made it a little runny. In either case, I will definitely make this again as it was very tasty! Oh, lots of leftovers too which is nice for lunches during the week.

This was excellent. Used reduced fat cheese to make it a tad healthier and also HOT Rotel which (beware) is truly hot! Was relatively low-maintenance and whole family loved it.
