Turkey Posole Casserole submitted by Mom Johnson
This is a cross between tamale pie and something like chicken and dumplings! A great way to use left-over turkey!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. To prepare the filling, place chicken stock and tomatillos in a blender and process until smooth. Set aside.

Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Add the onions, garlic and poblano; sauté for 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in the cumin and sauté 30 seconds. Add the stock mixture, 3/4 tsp. salt and hominy; bring to a simmer. Stir in 2 T. cornmeal and simmer 1 minute or until thickened. Stir in the turkey and the cilantro. Pour into a 13x9 inch casserole dish coated with cooking spray.

To prepare topping, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in the chilled butter with 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the green onions, and pepper-jack cheese. Add the buttermilk and stir just until moistened. Drop batter by spoonfuls evenly over the filling. Bake at 400 degrees for about 28-30 minutes or until topping is lightly browned. Serves 8.
