Number of Servings: 8


    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1.25 pounds chicken thighs, boned and skinned, cut into 1" pieces
    2 cans hominy, drained and rinsed
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 tsp oregano
    .5 tsp cumin
    .25 tsp red pepper flakes
    2 cans low sodium, low-fat chicken broth
    1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
    2 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped (optional, to taste)
    1 tbsp lime (or lemon) juice
    .25 tsp black pepper


Combine all ingredients except the tomatoes, lime juice and black pepper in slow cooker. Cover and cook on High for 3 hours, or Low for 5 hours. Stir in tomatoes, lime juice and pepper, and recover until warmed through (about 5 minutes). Serve immediately. Makes 8 one cup servings.

The sodium figures from the calculator are probably high since there is no option for draining and rinsing the hominy.

  • This is a great "template" recipe! Very filling and satisfying. I made some changes. Don't we all! My husband is a picky eater and he really enjoyed this. Thanks! - 11/3/17

  • We loved this recipe. We used Rotel tomatoes with Lime and Garlic and added fresh Pablano Peppers. We love spice so this was perfect for us. - 3/16/12

  • Muy Sabroso. Used rotel for the tomato and jalapeņo and dark chile powder for the flaked. Also I used fresh nixtamal (the canned stuff gets to soft for my taste) so I started that with broth the night before. - 1/19/11

  • My husband picked this recipe to try and we both loved it. Instead of fresh jalapenos, I used a small can of the diced chiles and used chicken breasts instead of thighs. It was a little spicy for me, but I still kept eating. I loved it! - 8/23/10
