Hominy, what to do with it.

While in a Spanish market near the house, I picked a few things i've never tried before. One of which being white hominy. Before I go searching the internet, does anyone have any suggestions ??

Hominy has a flavor that's a cross between a bean, such as pinto or great northern, and a fresh corn tortilla. It is great in chili, or in corn chowder (Native American style). It can be used in various vegetable soups as well, especially if they have a bit of tomato in them.

Hominy is usually used to add flavor and a starchy, bean-ike texture to soups, stew, and chowders. It can be eaten by itself with butter, but usually isn't. Tomato, cummin, and coriander go great with it as does black pepper (coarse grind), and a bit of salt.

I'm a bit adventurous and so might even try to combine it with diced potato, onion, and ground beef in a hash, or with rice that's been boiled in chicken stock with diced meat of your choice. Add some diced peppers and you'd have a pretty tasty rice dish.

Just some ideas for you.

I use it in chili and soups, and the pozole. I like the other ideas I see here. I has that real savory corn flavor.

Yes, dried. On the back there is a recipe to make some kind of pudding.

I buy canned hominy frequently (it's very popular around here), but just serve it plain with butter, salt, & pepper as a side dish. I particularly like it as a breakfast side, but it works well alongside meatloaf & other comfort-type foods.
