This is a recipe that I modified when my husband was diagnosed with diabetes. In the past I added potatoes, which cooked apart and thickened the stew. But since white potatoes were out of our diet, I needed something to thicken it. I read that oatmeal is great for thickening soup, so I gave it a worked like a charm! Makes 4 generous servings at 4 WW points per serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour with salt and pepper.
  2. Lightly dust cubed pork with flour.
  3. Brown pork in hot oil over medium-high heat until browned.
  4. Add chicken broth, onion, green chiles, Rotel tomatoes, hominy, oats & garlic.
  5. Salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Bring to a boil and simmer 3 to 4 hours. I usually cover the soup until the last hour, then remove the lid so the soup will cook down a little.
