Flavors intensify with longer cooking time – I like to leave it on low overnight in crock-pot.

Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add garlic cloves, onion, carrots, tomatoes, and green beans; sauté 5 minutes.

Add white hominy near end of cooking time since it is already tender.

Ladle stew into bowls.

Serve with garnishes: roasted chilies, pico de gallo or salsa, tortilla chips, shredded cheese, lime wedges, sour cream.

Easy and fantastic for leftover ham.

This is just a basic recipe – you can adjust the intensity by altering amounts of cumin, green chilies, etc. I love cumin – so I add lots!! 4 chilies may be enough for some – I double that amount! [I posted this recipe.]
