Mexican Hominy

Mexican Hominy

It's always a good idea to wear rubber gloves when seeding any type of pepper. If you prefer, leave the seeds in the jalapeño for an extra peppery punch!

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced seeded jalapeño pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 none (15-ounce) can golden hominy, drained
  • 1 none (14.5-ounce) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add jalapeño pepper and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Stir in hominy; reduce heat to medium, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomatoes, salt, and black pepper; cook until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with cilantro.
