Eh, this was ok. To be honest, it was just way too salty for my taste, maybe because of the taco mix and the ranch mix. I used a can of Mexicorn instead of hominy and added a can of black beans....

Fantastic! I added a can of beer, an extra 1/2 packet of taco seasoning and a can of corn! Served with cilantro, sour cream, avocado, and cheese to put on top!
