    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!

    10. 10
      Remove from heat and stir in the tomatoes.
    11. 11
      Serve over the cheese grits.
    12. 12

    14. 14
      *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!
