Super Bowl? Super bowl! Super good idea in a bowl. Nacho grits? Not yo grits! I’m done.
You take all the things you love about nachos and you cook a big pot of grits (which are just liquid corn chips if you think about it) and you put out bowls and let people top their grits with whatever combination they love the most! Provide chips, too, because what jerk makes people crave nachos and then doesn’t have that as an option? Not this gal. After making all the toppings, I REALLY wanted super-cheesy nachos! But the nacho grits was an awesome idea, so we had to create it. And it was tremendously filling and amazing.
For my bowl, I went with chorizo, black olive, scallion, shredded asadero cheese, Ro-tel, cilantro and Mexican crema. I incorporated cheese and garlic into the grits, so they already had that “nacho cheese” flavor. Really quite delicious! I’d recommend very small bowls for this magical side dish at the big game because it will fill your guests up very quickly!
