You can make this wonderful soup with chicken, pork or beef (if using beef, use beef broth). It’s also good as a vegetarian soup. Hominy is a form of corn that has been treated with lime or lye. The canned chilies can be found in the ethnic foods section of the supermarket, and Old El Paso is an acceptable brand.

2 30 oz. cans hominy

1 14 ½ oz can diced, peeled tomatoes

1 7 oz can green chili

1 ½ cups diced or shredded chicken, pork or beef

2 tbsp olive oil

1 – 2 tsp chili powder, to taste

2 tsp oregano

1 medium onion, chopped

1-2 cloves garlic, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1 cup vegetable or chicken broth

¼ tsp ground cumin

½ cup picante sauce

  1. In a large soup pot, heat the oil and sauté the onion until tender. Add the garlic and sauté another minute.
  2. Add the chicken, pork or beef and cook another 5 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes, chilis and broth, as well as the chili powder, cumin, oregano and picante sauce. Mix well.
  4. Add the hominy and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Correct the seasoning and serve.

Serve with cornbread, salad.
