This was my first time trying hominy and I loved the spicy flavior.  This recipe was a hit with everyone!

100% fav Food Hero recipe!!  And I love that it uses an ingredient that is low cost and I hadn't used before.  I couldn't belive from the taste that it was really healthy?!?!  It is a comfort food as another commentor mentioned.  I had to look at the nutrition info, and yes it really is healthy, low fat, and a good source of calcium, A and C!!  I will make this again and again!!
