Recipe by USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson
"Spices permeate the entire dish - cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper - and hominy adds an authentic Southwestern accent to this chicken chili. Save a big chunk of time simply by using rotisserie chickens from the supermarket and canned chicken broth as the chili base."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Loved it! I improvised a little ... Williams' pre-pkgd chili spice mix, black beans, hominy and didn't add the add'l corn. i used a can of diced tomatoes also. Its a great alternative to standard beef chili.
I really enjoyed the flavor and texture of this soup. It was just a bit too much corn flavor after a whole bowl.
With some changes, this recipe is FABULOUS!!! I used 3 chickens instead of 2. I didn't bother to make my own broth and used just 6 cups of water and chicken boullion. I pureed 1 can of hominy and one can of beans for added thickenss, and when the whole beans were added, I used 1 can hominy and 1-2 cans of beans. This makes the chili much meatier and the added beans (both whole and pureed) add a lot more thickness and texture.
My husband found this recipe years ago in an airline magazine. It's awesome! I wouldn't change the recipe a bit, it's perfect the way it is; a bit time consuming, but worth the time & effort. I fry up some corn tortilla strips in hot oil till crispy and use it as a condiment along with the limes and cilantro. My kids request this recipe over and over again. It freezes well too!
I made this with chicken thighs rather than rotisserie chicken, and halved the recipe. I used hot green chile, and adjusted the spices--using a little more than half. I also used prepared stock, and simmered it in the crock pot all day. This is not what I would necessarily call a "chili". To me, it seemed more like a New Mexico posole with chicken. The flavor was fantastic. I think I will also try this in the future with pork rather than chicken.
This was very good. The only changes I made were to omit the cayenne pepper (we don't like spicy) and to cut the recipe in half. Oh, and I used 1 can hominy pureed and 1 can cannellini beans. It seemed like it might be missing something. But, it was a nice change from red chili. Thanks for the recipe.
Bryan liked-makes alot
Loved this! I used 3 cans of white beans instead of hominy and added an extra can of jalapenos. Will definitely make again.
