Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the tomatillos, and boil for 10 minutes; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and cook until they have softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the hominy, marjoram, and thyme, cook and stir 5 minutes more. Pour in the milk, parsley, and half of the corn kernels, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  3. Puree the tomatillos with the remaining half of the corn until smooth in a blender, then stir into the soup along with the roasted peppers. Simmer the soup for 10 minutes, then remove the parsley sprigs, and sprinkle with cilantro before serving.

Great recipe! I would give it 5 stars, but I made some alterations, so I don't know if the original is worth it. I added cubed chicken, used dry spices, added some cayenne pepper and a couple chicken bouillon cubes. It was great! Next time I will double the number of roasted red peppers, just because I like the flavor.

This recipe as written has no flavor. Loved the concept but was flavorless. Had to add hot sauce, chicken boullion, 2 bay leaves, 2 whole stalks of celery and a whole clove of roasted garlic. Great concept but needs alot more flavor.
