FABULOUS! I had grown a ton of tomatillos this summer and was looking for different ways to use them (there's only so much salsa verde one can eat). This proved to be an excellent way. And now I'm going to have to can a bunch so that I can make this dish throughout the winter. My husband was wild about it, and we even chopped some up for our 10 month old, who loved it too. It was a great balance of heat and tang, and the hominy added a wonderful taste and texture. We might try shredding the pork next time for a different texture and serving it with jalapeno corn bread. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!
