1 small onion

2 jalapenos

Start by dicing up your garlic, onion, and jalapeno. Sauté them over medium heat with the butter. Once the onions are halfway to clear, add in water and salt and turn the heat to high. Once it is boiling, add the cup of corn grits and turn the heat to low.

Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the water is gone.
