The meat develops a rich, full-bodied flavor when it's cooked to a dark brown, so be sure not to stir the pork until it releases easily from the pan. Serve this hominy-based fiery pork soup recipe with warm flour tortillas.


  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free Southwest chipotle seasoning blend (such as Mrs. Dash)
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can white hominy, undrained
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes with jalapeo peppers and spices (such as Del Monte), undrained
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
