This perfectly piquant stew gets its flavour from a tomatillo (a Mexican green tomato) and hominy, a widely underused form of corn.

Ingredients

garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), medium, minced

uncooked onion(s)

1 small, chopped

tomatillo

¼ cup(s), chopped, about 1 large

jalapeño pepper(s)

1 medium, cored, seeded and minced (do not touch seeds with bare hands)

canned diced tomatoes

14½ oz, fire-roasted

cooked whole hominy

2 cup(s), or 15.5 oz can hominy, drained

canned pinto beans

1 cup(s), drained and rinsed

uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s), cut into bite-size pieces

cumin seeds

¼ tsp(s)

dried oregano

½ tsp(s), rushed

black pepper

¼ pinch

table salt

¼ tsp(s)

fat free chicken broth

1 cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add garlic, onion, tomatillo and chile. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. (*If a tomatillo isn’t available, substitute a red tomato and a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice in its place.)
  2. Stir in canned tomatoes, hominy, beans, chicken, cumin, oregano, pepper, salt and broth. (Note: If desired, substitute 2 cups of diced cooked chicken breast for the raw chicken. Reduce the cooking time to 5 to 10 minutes.)
  3. Cover skillet and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Yields about 1 3/4 cup per serving.
