What inspired our chili w/ hominy? The notion of making another traditional pot of chili with beans made us cringe. Also, hominy has subtle nutty flavors that we think enhance the combination of spicy chili powder and ground cumin. The Mixed Stew crew also added some real beef soup bone pieces that give this dish a “slow cooked” taste and consistency. Basically, our Chili w/ Hominy tastes like it’s been cooking for much longer than just 90 minutes. Remember too that servings of hominy are a good source of fiber.
