"Peppers, cumin and chili powder are a natural combination with corn and hominy (dried corn that's had its hull removed)."

poblano pepper, diced
red bell pepper, diced
fresh corn kernels
1 (14 ounce) can
hominy, rinsed (see Ingredient Note)
To make sure you have a 5 star experience with the recipe: instead of the poblano and the red bell peppers, use sweet peppers- a few orange, red, and yellow ones. Also make sure to buy the yellow hominy. I originally did it this way because it was what I had and it is now our favorite side dish. I did try it as directed with white hominy and the other peppers, but it just wasn't nearly as good.
I made this as written and I just didn't care for it. I am not sure why. I like all the ingredients and have made similar recipes in the past that I enjoyed (such as Calabacitas con Elote from Allrecipes). I think maybe the amount of chili powder didn't appeal to me? My husband said this recipe was ok, so that is how it got to 3 stars.
