Hominy is made of dried corn kernels from which the hulls and germs have been removed. You can find it in the canned-vegetable section of the supermarket near the corn.
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
4 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (15.5-ounce) can white hominy, drained
1 (15-ounce) can red beans, drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added stewed tomatoes, undrained and chopped
1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
4 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Stir in chili powder and next 5 ingredients (chili powder through stewed tomatoes); bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes. Spoon 1 1/4 cups chili into each of 4 bowls; top each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 tablespoon cheese, and 1 teaspoon cilantro.
Note: If hominy is not available, you can substitute 1 (11-ounce) can vacuum-packed white corn or 1 (25-ounce) can whole-kernel corn, drained. Hominy imparts a distinctive flavor remarkabley different from that of corn, so if you use corn, know that the dish will be more like a basic chili with beans.
Really good! Loved the hominy in it. I think it could use a bit more spice and flavor though. I'll add some more next time. Definitely will make again. Fiance loved it!
Also, took no time at all to throw together since there was no chopping. Loved that aspect of it!
This was excellent. My boyfriend said it would have been better with meat and I don't doubt that. I would definitely make this again, probably with some ground turkey or shredded chicken. I left it simmering for about an hour though, so it was nice and thick by the time we ate it.
