This was excellent the way it was written, and with small changes. The first time I made it, I ate almost the entire pot. The second time I made it (which was the next day), my husband ate almost the entire pot. really wonderful addition to our group of staple recipes.
My family loves this soup! I made it twice in two weeks and just realized I hadn't reviewed it yet. Thanks for a great recipe!!! The only thing I do differently is I add some hot sauce to it.
Thanks Mercy for the recipe. All I had was 2 cups of hominy, so used that along with ground beef since the recipe stated any meet could be used and it was great. The soup is actually very similar to a mexican soup I've been looking for, for a long time now. The hominy replaced the corn tortillas which we usually eat with this type of soup. I did use about 1/2 cup of cilantro for a stronger taste. Thanks again
