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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Excellent flavor! Used chipolte chili powder which added a nice smokiness. Don't skip the cheese, cilantro, and sour cream - they help make the dish.

I loved this dish. I added extra lean protein to up the protein content. It was so flavorful, and simple to make.

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.

Wow. This Chili was amazing. Everyone loved it. I took it too work and let my co workers try it and they loved it too. I passed along the recipe. So so so good.

Yummy! Mine came out a little too watery, so next time I might consider draining one of the canned tomato ingredients.
