Green Chili and Cheese Grits

It's hatch chili season in Texas! Whole Foods is celebrating, Central Market is putting them in everything, and there are recipes galore. I actually don't know why hatch chiles are such a big deal here, and I don't like that all the brownies, tortillas, and deli case items at Central Market right now are incorporating them, but I did find an amazing recipe at Whole Foods. 

Here it is:
Loved this! I added a little less than a 1/2 stick butter, and I added a little extra cheese. I also grilled my hatch chili for about 10-15 minutes to give it extra flavor. Really fun and different side dish! Oh and I topped mine with crumbled bacon.
