3. Cook them until slightly softened, about 30 minutes.

5. Mix until it forms a puree. If needed, add a little more cream until the potatoes are finely pureed.
Prepare the grits
1. In a large pot, add chicken broth and cook on medium heat.
2. Once it heats, add the grits and cook on medium-low to simmer.

5. Remove from the heat and add the cheese and stir.
Prepare the shrimp
1. Season your shrimp with kosher salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, and chili powder.
2. In a large pan, add olive oil and cook your shrimp for about two minutes, removing from the pan once it begins to develop a sear.
