Vegetarian Hominy con Queso

Hominy con Queso ~ Hominy with Cheese

Have you tried hominy? I tried it for the first time recently and I love it!

I do most of my grocery shopping at a large Mexican grocery store. They have great prices and a large selection of produce, cheese, meat and freshly made tortillas and baked goods. I regularly see people buying those large 6 pound cans of hominy that only cost a few dollars and have been wanting to try it.

Hominy is used in menudo, which most definitely does not fit in my vegetarian diet. I played around and came up with this wonderful dish that is basically a cheese and hominy casserole. I’ve made it multiple times, since it’s so easy and even the picky eater in my house thinks it’s delicious.
