Hominy Sausage Bake Recipe

My cousin Lewis whipped up this spicy corn dish for a family gathering one year. It's nice and hearty, and it has plenty of Cajun flavor running through it. —Frances Bowman Lilesville, North Carolina

"White or yellow hominy? I made this recipe as written, only adding some additional spices (garlic salt, black pepper, Cajun seasoning) and the overall result of the dish was okay. I wasn't too excited with it. I had a feeling it was going to need something more (or maybe less - ham AND sausage?), and if I make it again, I'll definitely add at least 1/2 onion chopped. Never been a fan of Zatarain's beans and rice, so again for next time, I would likely add my own pintos and rice from scratch. I would probably leave out the corn too since it and the hominy and the corn chips are just a lot of one thing. This recipe also makes more like 12 servings unless they are really large, then you could consider it to only be 8 servings, I guess."

"I just finished eating leftovers of this for lunch. I first made it several years ago. I LOVE it. My husband LOVES it. I even served it to my in-laws. The only thing I do differently is not layer it as directed. I just cook the sausage/hame together, dump in the rice then when it's finished I pour it into a 9x13 baking dish, throw the corn and hominy on it, bake then throw the cheese & crused tortilla chips on until the cheese melts. It's quick.

(Oh, I also do not add the jalapenos but would be good with it too)"
