These hot tomato grits have become my take to anything dish. This is always the recipe I am asked to make for pot luck suppers, etc. I substitute one can of diced tomatoes, Rotel, mild, or regular diced tomatoes for the fresh, in a doubled recipe. Using canned tomatoes means I can always have the ingredients on hand. thanks.

I used a can of MILD Rotel tomatoes, because i couldn't believe the 1/8 tsp of green chilies. Would have been better to use the SPICY, this definitely needs a kick! Otherwise, it was an easy dish to make, and the recipe easily would serve 8 to 10 as a side dish.
