Green Chile Grits
2 cups regular grits
6 cups water
1/2 teaspoon paprika (optional)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
4 to 6 ounces chopped mild green New Mexican chile
1 or more jalapeno chiles, seeded and finely chopped
Dash of cayenne
Combine all ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 6 to 9 hours or on HIGH 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally. If cooking on HIGH, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more water if too thick.
Serve immediately or refrigerate the mixture in a buttered loaf pan for a few hour or overnight, unmold, slice (1/2-inch) and fry in butter until browned.
