Hominy adds texture and a gentle corn taste, while fire-roasted tomatoes add a smoky flavor to this soup.

4 Servings

  • 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 (16-ounce) can hominy, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes with garlic
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 avocado, pitted and chopped
  • 1 lime, quartered, optional
  1. Coat a large saucepan with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the hominy, tomatoes, water, and ground chipotle and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 25 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat, stir in cilantro, and serve topped with avocado. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
