Green-Chile Grits

Thomas J. Story
 3 Anaheim or New Mexico green chiles
 4 cups chicken stock
 1 cup quick-cooking grits
 2 tablespoons butter
 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
 2 large eggs, beaten
Step 1

Broil chiles, turning once or twice, until skins are charred all over. Let sit until cool enough to handle, then peel skins and discard stems and seeds. Dice chiles.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350°. In a 3- or 4-quart pan over high heat, bring chicken stock to a boil. Add grits, reduce heat to medium, and stir until stock is absorbed, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in butter, cheese, and chiles.

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of the cooked grits into the beaten eggs. When blended, stir this mixture back into the saucepan with the rest of the grits. Pour mixture into a greased 2-quart casserole. Bake until just set, 25 to 30 minutes.
