Pork and Hominy Chili

If you've never tried hominy before, you're in for a treat. Mix canned hominy—a nutty, tender ingredient made from dried, hulled corn kernels—with chunks of pork and bold spices in this hearty, Mexican-inspired chili.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1 1/2 cups chili and 1 tablespoon sour cream)
