Jalapeño, roasted pepper, garlic grits

I have developed a new found love for savory grits. There in expensive and easy to make. Look for non-gmo quick cooking grits. NOT INSTANT. There is a difference. You want the quick cooking.

I start by putting 2T coconut oil in my cast iron Dutch oven on medium heat 
Throw diced jalapeño in, dice Gaelic and toss it in and either roast your pen peppers or rinse jarred type, chop and throw them in. 
After sweating them in the pan, pour 2 c milk, 6 c water and 4 t butter. Salt and pepper
Bring to a boil, and add 2 c quick cooking grits. Stirring so it doesn't burn being back to boil and boil about 5 mins. 
It will thicken as the grits soak up the liquid. Take off burner and let sit a few mins and it will thicken more.
