  1. I do miss hominy!!! Haven't had it in over a year. This recipe will definitely be making it's way to our table! Thanks 🙂

  2. Hope you like it. This one has South Western flavors, but I want to try some other variations too.

    I was thrilled when I first noticed the low carb count on a can of Mexican-style hominy. It is still a grain, so I don't eat a lot of it, but I like it as a special treat every once in a while.

  3. I love cheese and yogurt, your recipe looks healthy, and thanks for the sharing

  4. Oh my God this looks so good and i`m sure that it is delicious too. I think it is not a very difficult recipe so i will give it a try, thanks a lot for sharing.
