Non-Veg Spouse has seconds of Mexican Stew
Posted Monday, March 1, 2010 at 10:19 PM
Thought I'd share this new recipe I tried for dinner tonight. My non-veg husband was heading to the kitchen for seconds and asked if I thought I could "duplicate" that recipe again
Got it from Dr. McDougall's February Newsletter emailed to me today.

Comforting Mexican stew featuring hominy, beans and vegetables subtly spiced with New Mexican chile powder. Serves 8.
1/4 cup vegetable broth, or water (see below)
1 yellow onion, peeled and diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 carrot, peeled and diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
5 sage leaves, minced (I didn't use these)
1 tablespoon New Mexican red chile powder (I don't like it too spicy, so only used 1 1/2 tsp.)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
(I added 1/2 tsp. of ground oregano)
28 ounces hominy, drained and rinsed
30 ounces pinto beans, drained and rinsed
15 ounces diced tomatoes, with juices (I used Muir Glen Fire Roasted crushed tomatoes)
3 cups vegetable broth, or water ( I used 3 Not-Beef vegan beef flavored bouillon cubes by Edward & Sons dissolved in hot water)
Heat 1/4 cup of vegetable broth in large pot over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, celery, carrot and garlic and sauté until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add sage, chile powder, cumin, coriander,(oregano) and salt and stir to combine.
Add hominy, pinto beans, diced tomatoes and 3 cups of vegetable broth. Turn up heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a rapid simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes, until stew has reduced to desired thick consistency.
Note: If using dried hominy and pinto beans, cook 1/2 pound of each, and then add cooked hominy and pinto as directed above. Great online resource for dried hominy, beans and spices: Rancho Gordo New World Specialty Food - www.ranchogordo.com
