“I got this recipe from a Better Homes and Garden magazine all on Mexican food. I have made this recipe a few times now for a variety of people and everybody LOVES it! It's awesome and a must try! The recipe calls for hominy, and I always forget to buy it so I throw some corn in the mixture and it's good and adds a little color. It looks a little intimidating because of the number of ingredients but takes 35 minutes total to prep and cook and well worth every minute of it!”
