    justcallmetoni's Note:

    I am one of those people who likes hominy, particularly in Southwestern soups and stews. Came across this side dish in a new Weight Watchers cookbook and decided that it would soon be making an appearance on my dinner table.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Remove the frozen corn from the freezer to begin defrosting.
    2. 2
      To prepare the Poblano chiles, place them directly over gas flame on your stove. Allow the skin to char and blister before turning using long tongs (or well padded fingers). Once all sides are charred, about five minutes, toss the peppers in a resealable bag and close. Set aside about ten minutes to allow the heat to steam the chiles. Once cooled, peel and seed the peppers, and give them rough chop.
    3. 3
      Heat the vegetable oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for two or three minutes until the onions are tender. Stir in the garlic, cumin and epazote/oregano and continue to cook another 30 seconds.
    4. 4
      Add in the corn and hominy, stirring occasionally, and cook for two minutes. Stir in the Poblanos and salt to taste. Cook an additional two or three minutes until the everything is heated through.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and mix in the cilantro and lime juice.
    6. 6
      Serve with lime wedges.

      Great recipe! I substituted green bell peppers for the poblanos as I don't like quite as much heat, but it was delicious. WW flex....3 points per 1 cup serving!

      Holy moly this is *great* stuff! The 2 of us came close to finishing off the entire thing in one sitting! I made pretty much as written, roasting my peppers under the broiler since I am quite lazy. I have never run across epazote so I used 1 1/2 tsp fresh oregano. The layers of flavor and texture are quite unique and the presentation is beautiful. Thanks for posting this recipe! I see this dish becoming a regular around my house.

      What a superb, fresh tasting dish to serve alongside most anything! I subbed 1 jalapeno for the poblano, left out the onion and added 1 tsp taco seasoning instead of the cumin and oregano, but it was still delicious. We'll surely be turning to this quick side over and over again!
