Call it a soup or a stew; its delicious either way.

Whether you call it a soup or a stew, this hearty vegetarian dish made with white hominy is guaranteed to satisfy even the most committed carnivore (at least it did in my house). I'm loving meatless Mondays!

You can find hominy in lots of supermarkets alongside the canned beans. Ancho chile powder provides a smoky flavor and while it's hot, it isn't killer hot. Feel free to add more if you'd like. If you don't have ancho chile powder or smoked paprika, no worries, simply use your favorite chile powder and swap in regular paprika for the smoked.

  • Can't wait to try the hominy stew!

  • Made this with one substitution, used chipolte chili powder instead of ancho. It was really delicious but quite spicy. Will make it again.

  • I have never seen hominy in Australia, could this be done with chickpeas?

  • This is excellent! I've made it a few times now and we like it best with chicken broth (double the suggested 2 cups of broth to 4-5 cups or more), 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken, and a large can of crushed tomatoes (instead of the 1 cup of tomatoes in puree). It's more of a soup this way and the cilantro and lime are such a great addition! Many thanks for the recipe.

  • Chicken is meat. This is a meatless recipe.

  • Hi Vegetarians,

    I am surprised to discover that animal sacrifice is not a choice for creators of hominy.
