  • 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.
