  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, combine Italian sausage and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until sausage is evenly browned. Drain cooked sausage in a strainer to remove grease.
  2. In a large Dutch oven or stock pot, combine the beef broth, hominy, stewed tomatoes, carrots, beans, and zucchini. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and add sausage and cilantro; simmer for 15 minutes, or until carrots and zucchini are tender. Season with salt and pepper.

I used mild italian sausage, bulk from the butcher and added red pepper flakes to the soup to our liking. I formed the italian sausage into meatballs and cooked them per the recipe. Changed nothing else. WONDERFUL! We love cilantro and thought this was GREAT! Served it with a cheesy foccacia bread!

A hearty, tasty soup. Served with garlic bread and fresh fruit, and my husband loved it. A minor change from the recipe, I used two cans of beans and one cup of cilantro (two bunches). This recipe is definitely a keeper.

We loved this soup and have renamed it Mexican Minestrone. Based on what was in the house, we substituted consume, Rotel tomatoes, barley and garbanzos for the beef broth, stewed tomatoes, hominy and Great Northern beans respectively. I was unsure about the amount of cilantro the first time that I made the recipe, but found that it was a it was a great addition and very refreshing. Have made it quite a few times. Always great!

Excellent soup! Added some vegetables that my husband will eat like green beans and corn, and used regular Italian sausage not the hot. I have made this soup many times and will continue to do so.

Very yummy. I used different beans and chick peas instead of hominy (didn't have any) but I'm sure it didn't make a bit of difference. We loved it. I used one pound of sausage instead of two and I didn't take the casings off of the sausage. Nobody noticed. I will make this again.

As far as I am concerned, cilatro tastes like bar soap. This soup works great with ¼-½ cup of just regular, normal parsley. A bottle of dark beer makes it even better (in the soup, that is).

Excellent very meaty soup, but you gotta like cilantro. I cut back a little the first time and will only put about half of what the recipe calls for next time.

Fabulous, hearty fare! I made a few changes: No hominy, extra can of Northern beans, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, and a combo of hot and mild italian (turkey) sausage (total weight 1.5 lbs). (I also needed to add more water while it was simmering to make the soup more brothy.) With some warm bread from the oven, this soup makes a wonderful winter meal.
