Recipe by Miss Annie
This is an easy meal to put on the table. I love to make this in the fall and winter. The chile powder from New Mexico makes a lot of difference, but you could make your own chile powder from chile pods, or buy it at the store. NOTE: If you buy chili powder (like McCormick) from the store, it is a blend of ingredients. Omit the oregano if you use it.

I must respectfully disagree with KyJo's post; I thought this was wonderful, and so did my family. I just loaded up on hominy again, so I can make more of it. Thanks Miss Annie, for a winner!
