Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add poblano pepper, bell pepper and corn, and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Recipe Tips & Notes:
  • Ingredient Note: Hominy is white or yellow corn that has been treated with lime to remove the tough hull and germ. Dried, ground hominy is the main ingredient in grits. Canned, cooked hominy can be found in the Mexican or canned-vegetable section of large supermarkets--near the beans.

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.
