Chicken & Hominy Soup (by accident!)

This was a TOTAL oops recipe, but has turned into a new family favorite! I started making my chicken tortilla soup the other night but halfway through I realized I had no black beans or chicken breasts!! So I tweaked it a bit and came up with this. I was shopping the other day and hominy was on sale so I grabbed 2 cans. I have never fed my family hominy before so I wasn't sure if they'd like t or not. Well... they LOVED it! Not too shabby for an oops!

4 c. (2 cans) chicken broth
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
*Combine ingredients and bring to a boil*

2 cans hominy (rinsed & drained)
1 can corn
2 cans of canned chicken (12oz. ea.) *I buy mine at Costco* (Shred with forks)
1 /2 c. salsa
1 small yellow onion (diced small)
lime wedges (optional)
Sour cream (option)
Shredded Mexican blend cheese (optional)
avocado (optional)

1-Once you have brought the top 4 ingredients to a boil, turn it down to med. heat and add all the remaining ingredients.

2-Simmer until all ingredients are warmed through and onion is translucent/ tender.

3-Serve in bowls topped with sour cream and shredded Mexican blend cheese and warm cheese quesadillas. Throw on some avocado slices and give it a squirt of fresh lime juice!

*I have made this 3 times now and have tried a few different things in it. One of my new favorites is 1 can of stewed tomatoes. Just be sure you mush them up really well with your hand before you add them to the pot. Also avocado slices for the top is yummy!*
