If you've never tried hominy before, you're in for a treat. Mix hominy with chunks of pork and bold spices in this hearty, Mexican-inspired chili.
2 teaspoons canola oil
8 ounces boneless center-cut pork chops, trimmed and cubed
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium)
3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 cup no-salt-added tomato paste
1 (15.5-ounce) can golden hominy, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup light sour cream
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in chili powder and next 4 ingredients (through red pepper). Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in tomato paste, hominy, tomatoes, and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream.
Really satisfying on a cold winter night! Made a couple minor adjustments. Used fire roasted green chilies instead of green pepper. Used leftover pork shoulder roast and added a can of kidney beans. In addition to sour cream, served with chopped cilantro and chopped avocado - it was killer!
Followed ingredients and proportions with a few modifications. Used cubed trimmings from pork shoulder instead of chops, half poblano & half bell pepper, no tomato paste because we were out of it. Simmered til meat was tender. Pretty good.
This was easy and delicious and my picky husband loved it so much he took leftovers to work! I made exactly as recipe is written and wouldn't change a thing. I loved using hominy instead of beans - no gas!!
I loved this chili...more of a soup in my opinion. I didn't have cumin though so I left it out. A little too spicy for our family so next time, I think I will leave out red pepper. So if you're not a huge fan of spicy stuff either, I would say great recipe, just tone down chili spices a bit. Thank you to creator of recipe!
Comes together easily (I love deglazing the pan w/the tomatoes and broth). Very, very tasty. My local market only carries white hominy in this size can, and it was fine. Very nice color, taste, etc. Loved the sour cream with it. Highly recommend the recipe.
