  • Slice polenta into ½" slices. Place in dish and add oil, salt, granulated garlic and smoked paprika. Mix well.
  • Slice onion and jalapenos. Place polenta, onion and jalapeno on grill. Cook 5 minutes on each side (but watch carefully because grills differ in cooking time).

Use precooked polenta, and do not slice too thin so that they will hold up on the grill.
