    Manami's Note:

    Southern and Southwestern ingredients unite in this sustaining meal of beans, peppers and tomatoes over the best grits you will ever eat! If you don't have the quick-cooking variety, use regular and follow the ingredients on the pkg. F&W Magazine. We are always looking for different ways of serving black beans and this one sounds like a winner; we may have to cut down on the amout of heat!

      *WINE:"The robust and varied flavors in this dish want a big, spicy, and fruity red wine to match their intensity. Zinfandel see ms to have an affinity for black beans, and a sturdy example from the Napa Valley will suit these grits and beans well.".

      Unbelievable! I have always disdained cheese grits, as I am an old southern girl who only ate them with butter and s&p. I have already suggested to 2 people to try this dish. Next time, though, I will use just a touch more pepper flakes for a little more heat. Thnx so much for posting, DiScharf!
