Loved the flavor, next time I will omit the hominy (not a fan) and add some potato and carrot instead. Thanks for sharing Read More

Recipe sounds good, but you might want to change the recipe to note that if you are cooking the meat in batches, you need to return the meat to the pot before adding all the liquid and cooking. Read More

This was soooo good. Every time I've made it for others, it gets rave reviews. I've made it as is and I've made it doubling the hominy. I've also used hot diced chiles to add a good kick. It's one of my favorite recipes and pretty easy. It did take 40 min to do a full natural release, just FYI. Read More

I would double the hominy and add jalapeno slices as garnish so everyone can add their desired level of heat. The recipe itself is pretty mild. Perfect for a cold day like today. Loved it. Read More

This was so good I ate it all in less than a two days easy dish - I found some country style pork ribs and cut those into chunks and it worked great Read More

Great Soup. The one change I made was adding a chipolte pepper and some abode sauce instead of the Chipolte chilli pepper Read More
