 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      quarts        Water
   12      ounces        Quick grits
      1/2  pound         Butter
    2                    Jalapenos, diced -- remove
                         seeds for sissies.
    1      medium        Red bell pepper -- diced
    1      medium        Poblano pepper -- diced
    1      medium        Onion -- diced
      1/2  pound         Cheddar cheese -- grated
      1/2  pound         Monteray Jack -- grated
    4                    Eggs -- beaten

 Bring water to a boil. Add grits and simmer for 5 minutes. (For thinner grits, 
 add more water.) Set aside. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high 
 heat; add peppers and onion. Saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add to 
 grits, along with cheeses. Add eggs and season with salt.
 Pour into a 2-quart casserole and refrigerate until ready to cook. Bake in a 
 preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes, or until set. Serve immediately.
