Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch casserole or baking pan, and set aside.

In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Add salt and cornmeal, and bring to a simmer, reducing the heat if necessary. Cook, stirring, for about 10 to 15 minutes, until thickened.

Remove from heat, and stir in cheese, butter, hot sauce, jalapeños, green chiles, and garlic salt. Add beaten eggs and stir thoroughly to combine.
Pour mixture into buttered baking dish. Bake for about 1 hour.
