Spanish Hominy

I received this recipe from a good friend who is a fabulous cook. The colorful side dish gets its zesty flavor from spicy canned tomatoes with green chiles. —Donna Brockett, Kingfisher, Oklahoma

    Sí ésto es cocinar que venga Dios y lo vea. Equivocaron el nombre, debería llamarse abre latas. Y esto no es español, sí acaso, argentino y solo parecido llamado tomatican

    My grandfather made something similar, he added celery and mushrooms- we had it with over easy eggs as a brunch. Yummy! I still make it!

    I have a question about the cooking timethe recipe says, cook for 6 to 8 hours or until heated through..So does it take that many hours to heat through. I feel for that lone it would be mush. Hopefully she means just"until heated through"

    This went over well with my crew. I have served it with cheese enchiladas and once with meat loaf, which I intend to repeat soon.
