Zesty Hominy and Cheese

A different sidedish using hominy, sour cream, cheese and green chilies. Friends who say they don't like hominy eat it and ask for more. It's fast and tasty. Adjust chili peppers to taste.

Oven Roasted Hominy

These are very good. When baked correctly they have almost a Corn Nut® consistency. I love garlic powder and chili powder on mine, but feel free to experiment with other seasonings.

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

This soup is quick to make, flavorful, and filling! Serve with warm corn bread or tortillas. This also freezes well. Garnish with chopped fresh avocado, Monterey Jack cheese, crushed tortilla chips, or green onion!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Rating: Unrated
Traditional Mexican Posole is served with shredded cabbage, lime wedges, avocado, onion, cilantro, and, of course, warm tortillas. Many Mexican markets have posole meat already chopped up for you. You can add another can of hominy if your slow-cooker is large. I prefer hot enchilada sauce with salsa, but the regular kind will do.
