Hot Tomato Grits

This reminds me of Tomato Gravy and grits, except it is easier. If you ever have breakfast for dinner this is perfect with scrambled eggs, bacon and homemade biscuits.

Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring often, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in cheese; cover and let stand 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Garnish is desired.
