Whoa! Maybe they DON'T sell grits in Bogotá!

We have been making a real effort to learn how to cook using local fruits, vegetables and other foods.  However, it's also nice to occasionally have an old favorite, and Paula's Shrimp and Grits are certainly that.
There is no lack of different forms of ground corn here; I think the stuff even originated somewhere in these parts.  However, of the seven different grades of milled maize, none was quite there.  We looked at each other, and said, "I don't think we're in North Carolina anymore!"
It was still a great meal, and the cilantro on top added a nice Latin American spark to a southern classic, and I don't just mean Paula.  
We hope your corn meal is juuuussst right!

Dave & Paula
