I made this as a wonderfull side dish to grilled chicken. The only changes I made were instead of green chilis I used 3-jalapeno peppers (fresh diced). Then before baking i added a layer of italian bread crumbs for texture. My family and I love it. (Hominy is a great substitute for heavy carbs.) Read More

A delicious and different way to eat hominy. I love cream cheese but thought this had a little too much. Otherwise it was great. Read More

This is delicious! I made it as a side dish for Easter and it went wonderfully with the brisket and sausage we barbecued (we're a little non-traditional). We topped it with a crumb topping like the one in the South Coast Hominy recipe from this site and it made a big difference. Next time we're going to add some meat of some kind to make it more of a main dish. Spice it up with a little cumin and some smoked paprika and chili powder and this is YUMMY! Read More

Well this was the first time my husband or I had hominy. I was experimenting with new things:). I gave the recipe five stars because it does have great flavor and I liked the taste...I don't think though that my husband or I care for the texture of hominy itself much. But I didn't think that my review should reflect that as it isn't the fault of the recipe. Anyway if you like hominy this is a good recipe with great cheesy flavor! Read More

Oh wow was this ever good. If I recall correctly I reduced the cream cheese by half and added a 1/4 cup of plain yogurt...I also rinsed the hominy before adding it. This is easily one of the top five things I have ever made here on AR. Love the texture! Read More

I was actually kind of surprised by the heat in this dish because I thought for sure all the cheese would balance it out but it was still pretty spicy. I will make this recipe again. Read More

I had high hopes for this but it was a bit disappointing. It was bland and took longer to cook than stated. Next time I will add green chiles and more salt/pepper. Will always try a recipe twice!;o) Read More

We really liked this. This was done about 30 mins before the rest of the meal and we munched on it til dinner....we ended up eating about 1/3 of it before we even sat down! I used garlic powder and onion powder in this instead of the garlic and onion it called for but it turned out great! Read More
