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.
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans, rinsed & drained
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can red beans, rinsed & drained
- 1 (28 ounce) can hominy, rinsed & drained
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can green enchilada sauce
- 1 (4 ounce) can Ortega green chilies, diced
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1⁄2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Cook onion, bell pepper and garlic in oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until tender, about 10 minutes.

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.
