This is a recipe that I first found in Gourmet Magazine. I changed a few things around to adjust to my taste buds. It's a very hearty and fresh tasting. A nice change from regular chili.

this was really good. i also used green salsa instead of the enchilada sause and corn instead of the hominy and only white canelli beans. and instead of the red pepper i threw in some chipolte peppers.. mm mm and super spicy just how we like it. it was a little soupier than i like but it may have been because i used salsa or i could use less broth. but very tasty! oh i also threw in some celery. mm thanks

This was really good, and simple to make. I couldn't find enchilada sauce in my little corner deli, so I substituted some very spicy salsa. Turned out great, very light tasting, but filling.
