Baked Hominy

With my recent obsession with pozole (here and here), I’ve also acquired a new appreciation for hominy. Since we have a long-standing tradition of celebrating Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo, I created a new dish for the occasion. This was served with Salsa Chicken enchiladas.

  • 2 standard cans of hominy
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (Mexican blend or Monterrey Jack)
  • 1 small can diced green chiles
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp minced chives
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup (or so) crushed tortilla chips (optional)

Drain hominy and pour into large bowl; add all other ingredients except chips. Spoon into sprayed or buttered casserole dish or skillet and top with crushed chips if desired. Bake at 350⁰ for 30 minutes or until golden and bubbly on top.
