Canned hominy--- uses for: other than pozole

I'm looking for some fairly easy recipes using canned hominy (not grits).
Not pozole----although I do make that and love it.

It doesn't even necessarily have to be Mexican "flavored".

I think Kathleen just heats it and eats it with some butter on it (like grits)...

Drain the can and whizz up the kernels in a blender. Drizzle in a little olive oil while it's going. Serve as a dip like hummus.

You can also use this dip as a sandwich or wrap spread. I'd add some seasoning to it. Maybe garlic powder, cumin, ground coriander, salt and a little cayenne pepper.

I finally opened the can of white hominy I had in the cupboard--thought I'd do a quick posole. The can had been there for about 5-6 months. I've only made posole with blue hominy that I have soaked 24-48 hours. I have to say, the white canned hominy went in the chicken feed bucket. That is really gross stuff if you've every soaked and cooked dried hominy. Sorry, but I won't ever think about using canned hominy again--sort of like canned peas.

Some folks may think this is weird, but my mom used to heat it with evaporated milk, butter and salt and pepper. She probably drained some of the liquid, I do whenever I have done it. I guess I have nothing to compare to, as I have never used the "blue" dry hominy.
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

Canned Hominy adds great flavor to chili. It's also what you use for corn chowder. Of course it can be used in Posole'. It has a flavor similar to fresh corn tortillas, or tamale dough, with the texture of beans. I would even think it could be mashed and added to refried beans. Don't use it where you would use sweet corn. But I can see it in stews and chowders, in many Mexican, or Tex/Mex dishes. You might even add it to something like a cold gazpacho, or in place of chick peas in a salad, or even add it to a three-bean salad.

That' a few ideas anyways.

I've used a similar preparation as Somebunny. My mom always made that for me when I was a kid and I still like it.

Google "hominy recipes" and you'll come up with a lot of different ideas.
