Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • This vegetable stew is reminiscent of posole, a traditional Mexican main-course soup made with pork or chicken, broth, hominy, onion, garlic, dried chiles and cilantro.
  • Hominy is white or yellow corn kernels from which the hull and germ have been removed.
  • Accompany this stew with cheese nachos: Place tortilla chips on a microwave-safe plate and sprinkle them with shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 30 to 60 seconds or until the cheese is melted. Iced tea with lime or flavored sparkling water completes the meal.
