A spicy, cream, very satisfying soup that is very easy to make (despite the long list of ingredients!). It is from Cooking Light. Just as a precaution--remember to use only 1 chile from the can (however if you like it spicier, feel free to use another one!).

I made this and it is really good. It may have more of an "adult" taste. My kids didn't really like the hominy, and it was a little too spicy for my youngest (age 6). My husband would have liked it spicier!
