Hominy is a popular food in the American South, Central America and Mexico. Its mild, nutty flavor offers a slight sweetness that can take on the flavors surrounding it.
If you've never used hominy before, here are some recipe ideas.
Mix canned white hominy from Teasdale with pinto beans, chopped cilantro, diced jalapeño and Cotija cheese to create a bright and flavorful pinto bean and hominy salad. (Add a splash of fresh lime juice for zesty flavor.)
Or try combining Mexican-style hominy from Juanita's with corn meal, shredded pork and queso and bake or pan fry for delicious hominy corn patties. These treats can be served at breakfast with eggs, or as a savory appetizer at dinner.
You can also prepare hominy with water, diced onion and sea salt and let it slow cook in the crock pot or Instapot. The result is a delicious side dish that pairs perfectly with garlic pork chops, grilled chicken or barbecued ribs.
