Reviews for Hominy Taco Chili
"Loved this and it makes a large portion that feeds my large family with leftovers for lunch."
"We make a version of this that we also call taco soup, but it doesn't have as many beans or the hominy. I don't think I'd add the cumin the next time, as that was what I could taste predominantly, whereas with the taco soup I can taste the taco seasoning. It's fun to try something different, though."
"I substitute ground turkey for the beef as well as rotel tomatoes for the stewed tomatoes. I like beans a lot so I usually add kidney beans too."
