  1. Place the ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir until the beef and onion are browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Break the meat apart as it cooks. Drain excess fat.
  2. Place the browned beef mixture into a soup pot, and stir in hominy, corn, potatoes, green chilies, salsa, diced tomatoes, and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

This was totally easy to make. I'd make again. My family loved it. I wasn't sure what the difference between yellow and white hominy but I used white. This was mild not spicy. It was very very good and it was a great alternative for my kiddos. We did have to add extra water because there wasn't any liquids to help cook with the potatoes and in fact it took longer to cook the potatoes for that reason. When reheated most of the juice factor is gone, but that's okay, I opened up a small can of green chili enchilada sauce and added to the stew and it was totally awesome as a reheat dish. We totally loved this.


We really liked this recipe and didn't find it to be too bland at all. I used a can of white hominy and a can of petite diced tomatoes. I did add the full 3 cups of water and found it to be a little too liquidy. I fixed that by adding a little cornstarch/water mixture and thickened it up to our liking. Topped it off with some shredded pepperjack cheese and it was perfect!


Very Good, but I made it without the meat, I really don't care for ground beef except in a burger. To make up for the lack of meat I added the recommended salt, pepper, cumin and broth instead of water.
