I've made this recipe for years. My family loves it. Although leery at first (my then teenaged daughter called it 'gloopy-loop'), after one taste they were won over. To satisfy their tastes, I left out the onion, green pepper, and olives. Now that my husband and I are empty-nesters, I have added back the onion and green pepper. Delicious, and if you aren't a fan of hominy, try this.

I grew up eating and loving hominy, but my family weren't thrilled with it until I made this recipe. Now it's a favorite that I make at least once a month.
