My mother-in-law introduced me to hominy shortly after my wife and I were married. I created a dish that would satisfy my love of spicy food.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels, reserving bacon grease in the skillet. Crumble bacon.

  • Cook and stir onion in reserved bacon grease over medium heat until caramelized, about 15 minutes. Stir hominy, jalapenos, and garlic into onion. Season with red pepper flakes, white pepper, and black pepper. Continue to cook and stir until flavors are combined, 7 to 10 minutes.

  • Stir bacon and tomatoes into onion mixture; cook and stir until tomatoes are heated through, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I have added chicken and shredded pork to this dish as well, but the bacon is normally fine for my meat choice.

Also try adding 4 eggs and making a spicy southwest scramble as a late breakfast.

I have also placed this into tortillas and made it into burritos as well.
