  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until they have softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the hominy, marjoram, and thyme, cook and stir 5 minutes more. Pour in the milk, parsley, and half of the corn kernels, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.

  • Puree the tomatillos with the remaining half of the corn until smooth in a blender, then stir into the soup along with the roasted peppers. Simmer the soup for 10 minutes, then remove the parsley sprigs, and sprinkle with cilantro before serving.

Great recipe! I would give it 5 stars but I made some alterations so I don't know if the original is worth it. I added cubed chicken used dry spices added some cayenne pepper and a couple chicken bouillon cubes. It was great! Next time I will double the number of roasted red peppers just because I like the flavor. Read More

This was very good but I did make a few changes. I roasted the corn and tomatillos under the broiler for about 12 minutes before boiling. I used a diced jalapeño in.place of the red peppers and I used a tablespoon of cumin in place of the other spices. I omitted the milk and stirred in 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt right before serving.

I used dry spices and added salt. I blended the roasted red peppers in with the tomatillos. Nice Valentines dinner with a good bread and green salad. Read More
