Bring 4 cups water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in grits; return to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in green onions and next 3 ingredients. Pour into a buttered 9-inch square pan; cover and chill 3 hours or overnight. Invert pan to remove grits; cut into 4 squares. Cut each square into 2 triangles. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat; add 4 triangles, and cook 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Gently remove to a serving platter; keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 tablespoon butter and grits triangles. Combine black beans and picante sauce in a small saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring often, until thoroughly heated. Spoon over grits cakes, and sprinkle with tomato and cilantro. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings. Note: You can mix the black beans and picante sauce ahead of time. Just heat as directed, and serve immediately with grits cakes. The grits cakes can also be baked at 350? for 7 minutes or broiled (with electric oven door partially open) 7 minutes. (Do not turn.) Tip: These are great served with Fresh Tomato Salsa.
