“Found in 1 of my newsletters from, this sure-to-be tasty recipe was submitted to them by reader Debra J. of O'Fallon, Missouri. They described it as a "meaty & lightly spiced stew". They already had this Dallas transplant on the hook w/Mexican fare, but big for me was "cooking made easy" w/my slow cooker. I revere my slow cooker! ... If you’re unfamiliar w/hominy, it's frequently used in Southern, Southwest & Latin-style dishes & is made of corn kernels soaked in a weak powdered lime solution (I never knew that). You'll find canned hominy in the Latin or canned canned vegetable sections of your grocery store. (You will need to use a 5 qt slow cooker for this) *Enjoy!*”
