MainRecipesSoup | Hominy, Tomato, and Chili Soup

   Hominy, Tomato, and Chili Soup submitted by Carrie Buffington
This is a recipe by Barbara Pool Fenzl found in the March 2003 Bon Appetit. I made this soup as the first course to a steak dinner, it is spicy and delicious, and very simple to prepare. I cut up some of the leftover steak and combined it with the soup for lunch today and it was a delicious variation, I'm going to try it with chicken as well.

Toast cumin seeds in a heavy small saucepan over medium heat until beginning to darken in color, stirring often, about 3 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Enclose in plastic bag and crush with hammer or mallet.

Heat oil in heavy large saucepan over med-high heat. add onion, anaheim chili, and garlic. Saute until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add New Mexico chili, oregano, and cumin seeds. Stir 2 minutes longer. Add broth, hominy, tomatoes with juice, and tostadas caseras. Bring soup to a boil; reduce heat to med-low, cover, and simmeruntil dried chili is very soft and flavors blend, about 45 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and lime juice to taste.
