Although Home Grown rightfully is known as a breakfast place, the lunch menu is no slouch. It's full of Southern classics, but the fun dip is one dish that doesn't look so familiar. It's a combination of pimento cheese, a generous serving of ground chorizo and cheese grits, all mixed together and served with wavy-cut potato chips. It sounds overwhelming, but the grits add a lightness to the dip that makes it incredibly addictive.
Home Grown’s dip is reminiscent of the classic Rotel, sausage and Velveeta dip you’ll often see in an electric cooker at tailgates, but somehow it manages to be even more Southern. The tang of the pimento cheese offsets the rich, spicy chorizo, while the grits keep all that flavor and fat from becoming overbearing. It’s great with the potato chips, but it might be even better if served with heavy-duty tortilla chips or corn chips. When a dip is this much of a party at lunchtime on a regular weekday, just think what a hit it will be on Super Bowl Sunday.
