Hominy Hummus


Yield: 2 cups


1 can of white hominy( approx 20 oz)

1 tbsp minced garlic

1.5 tsp cumin

1 tsp syracha

1 lime juiced

½ bunch of cilantro chopped

½ cup chicken stock or water (if needed)

Salt and pepper

4 pita bread cut in quarters


1.) Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until incorporated and lightly chunky. 

2.) Serve with pitas


I like deep frying the pita’s making them nice and greasy.  This is a good way to introduce hominy outside of the tradition posole.  It adds an interesting bite and stays slightly al dente.  I think subbing 1 chipotle in adobo sauce would make this hummus sing on your palate.
