Ready In:




  • Preheat broiler to high. Halve, stem, seed chiles. Place chiles, skin side up, on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray; broil for 5 minutes or until charred. Place chiles in a paper bag; seal. Let stand for 15 minutes. Peel and discard skins.
  • Arrange tomatillos (husked and washed) on prepared baking sheet, and broil 14 minutes or until blackened, turning once. Combine the chiles, tomatillos, 1/4 C cilantro, cumin and oregano in a blender. Add 1 C broth; process until smooth.
  • Heat a large dutch oven over medium high heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil; swirl to coat. Add jalapeno, onion, carrot, celery, and bell pepper; saute for 2 minutes stirring frequently. (you would add flour here - and stir for 2 minutes if you are using it -- ) Add garlic, saute for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Place onion mixture in a large bowl.
  • Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Add 2 tsp oil to pan. Add half of chicken; saute 3 minutes. Add browned chicken to onion mixture. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  • Combine remaining 1 C broth, tomatillo mixture, onion mixture and hominy in pan over medium high heat. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more S&P to your taste.
  • Ladle into bowls, top each with 1 Tbl sour cream and garnish with cilantro.
  • Note - I added more chicken broth and made more of a soup. With less chicken broth it is more of a stew -- .

<p>Until recently (Jan 2014) we lived downtown Chicago with my husband and our furry 4 legged baby (she's a westie!). &nbsp;We just uprooted and moved 2080 miles away to southern California for my husbands job. &nbsp;I love to cook and, of course, to eat!&nbsp; Cooking for friends and sharing recipes and tips is my biggest hobby. &nbsp;Cooking for new friends in San Diego will be fun, as soon as I can met them! &nbsp;This site, epicurious and king arthur flour are my favorite online recipe sites.&nbsp; My favorite magazine used to be gourmet.... why-oh-why did they close that magazine down?!&nbsp; Now I enjoy food network magazine and cooking light.</p>
