Cheesy Menudo from the Pantry

This is a great recipe from "100-Day Pantry" by Jan Jackson. Delicious! I would, however, like to do the following on the next round: drain the cans and replace that liquid with the same amount of salt-less chicken stock. It was somewhat on the salty side. Erm, but I'd keep the liquid from the green chilies. I think that might be important for flavor. Also, it used 1 t. garlic salt. The last thing this recipe needs is more salt, so I subbed 1/2 t. garlic powder.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Do not drain cans. Combine everything except cheese. When heated, add cheese and continue breaking it up with spoon while stirring. Heat until cheese is melted.
  2. Note: Croutons were good on this for some crunch.

A really simple and quick recipe. I discarded the juices as suggested and added some chicken stock. Also I used a sheep's cheese of velveeta style which tastes nearly like the original thing. This was the first time I had hominy, and maybe I would have liked the dish more if I liked hominy, but unluckily I found that I really don't care for it. So as I think this is a pretty good dish if you like hominy, I give it four stars :) Thanks for sharing!
