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.

- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 3⁄4 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 jalapenos, seeded and thinly sliced (or hot sauce to taste)
- 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can hominy, drained
- 1 lb fresh medium shrimp or 1 lb thawed frozen medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1⁄2 cup fresh cilantro leaves

- In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, cumin, and 1/4 t. of the salt.

This is sooooo yummy! We love hominy so that immediately drew me to this recipe. I added 2 cups of vegetable broth to make it more soup-like and it was fabulous! I used diced jalapenos from a jar and used a heaping teaspoonful. It was spicy but not too hot. I will definitely make this again when I want a fairly quick but fabulous soup!
The sum of the flavors is greater than the parts for sure in this one! Absolutely delicious. It went together very fast and easily too. My only complaint would be that it really isn't soup. It's more like a shrimp saute. That didn't stop the two of us from eating the whole thing in one meal, tho. Awesome meal. Thanks. ZWT5
First thank you for getting me over my fear of hominy. It was so good! I used only 1 jalapeno minced and wished I used 2. This wasn't very soup-y so I added 8 oz of tomato sauce. So delicious!! Definately use the cilantro and lime it adds alot to the dish. Made for ZWT5.
