Chili Spiked Hominy and Black Beans
Fresno Chili Spiked Hominy and Black Beans is the result of my search to use a new ingredient in a recipe this week. Hominy is made of dried maize, also known as corn. Typically hominy is used in soups and stews, but during the summer months I am always looking for ways to keep things fresh by adding ingredients from the garden. Choose a variety that has been simply processed with salt and lime. For black beans try to use no salt added canned or save money by cooking dried black beans and freezing them in pre-portioned containers. I used fresh Fresno Chilies from my garden but you can easily substitute the Fresno Chili with a Jalapeno. Feel free to add more or less chopped chili peppers to suit your own individual spice/heat preference.
