My aunt JoAnn planned to bring these to Thanksgiving last year and she keep calling them "chili cheese grits" on the phone. I pictured her opening a can of chili and dumping the can on some grits, which I am into, but I didn't know if that was a Thanksgiving dish??? Come to find out these babies are GREEN chili cheese grits and they. are. amazing.
