Hominy Chili with Beans

This Hominy Chili with Beans recipe is an easy, to-go recipe for when you are craving a chili but are short on time. For this meat-free chili, replace the meat while keeping the hearty consistency by adding hominy.

Hominy is made of dried corn kernels from which the hulls and germs have been removed. You can find it in the canned-vegetable section of the supermarket near the corn.

Ingredients: 11
– 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
– 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
– 4 teaspoons chili powder
– 1 teaspoon ground cumin
– 1 (15.5-ounce) can white hominy, drained
– 1 (15-ounce) can red beans, drained
– 1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, un-drained
– 1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added stewed tomatoes, un-drained and chopped
– 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
– 1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
– 4 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro

How To Make Chili:

Steps: 5
1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
2. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute.
3. Stir in chili powder and next 5 ingredients (chili powder through stewed tomatoes); bring to a boil.
4. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes.
5. Spoon 1 1/4 cups chili into each of 4 bowls; top each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream, 1 tablespoon cheese, and 1 teaspoon cilantro.

Note: If hominy is not available, you can substitute 1 (11-ounce) can vacuum-packed white corn or 1 (15.25-ounce) can whole-kernel corn, drained. Hominy imparts a distinctive flavor remarkably different from that of corn, so if you use corn, know that the dish will be more like a basic chili with beans.
