Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
For extra spice, use hot chili seasoning instead of the mild and add a small can of Old El Paso® chopped green chiles with the tomatoes.

Vary the taste by using black beans or chili beans instead of the hominy.
Do-Ahead Tip
Go ahead and make the chili ahead of time, and refrigerate or freeze. Chili is often better the next day because the flavors have a chance to blend.
Did You Know...
Hominy is also called posole and is dried white or yellow corn kernels that have had the hulls removed by soaking. You can find hominy in the canned vegetable section of the grocery store.
