Southwestern Shrimp Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

This recipe calls for an ingredient that I was not initially familiar with, being from the Northeast. Hominy, which I believe is also called posole, can be found with canned vegetables or south-of-the-border ingredients at the supermarket. From Real Simple Magazine.
