Directions

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, combine Italian sausage and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until sausage is evenly browned. Drain cooked sausage in a strainer to remove grease.
  2. In a large Dutch oven or stock pot, combine the beef broth, hominy, stewed tomatoes, carrots, beans, and zucchini. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and add sausage and cilantro; simmer for 15 minutes, or until carrots and zucchini are tender. Season with salt and pepper.

I used mild italian sausage, bulk from the butcher and added red pepper flakes to the soup to our liking. I formed the italian sausage into meatballs and cooked them per the recipe. Changed nothing else. WONDERFUL! We love cilantro and thought this was GREAT! Served it with a cheesy foccacia bread!

A hearty, tasty soup. Served with garlic bread and fresh fruit, and my husband loved it. A minor change from the recipe, I used two cans of beans and one cup of cilantro (two bunches). This recipe is definitely a keeper.

We loved this soup and have renamed it Mexican Minestrone. Based on what was in the house, we substituted consume, Rotel tomatoes, barley and garbanzos for the beef broth, stewed tomatoes, hominy and Great Northern beans respectively. I was unsure about the amount of cilantro the first time that I made the recipe, but found that it was a it was a great addition and very refreshing. Have made it quite a few times. Always great!
