Smokey, Spiced Hominy and Black Bean Taco Filling
Serves: 4
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, cut into medium dice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon each: ground cloves and black pepper
  • 1 canned chiles en adobo, minced
  • 1 can each: (15 to 16 ounces) hominy and black beans, drained
  • 1 can (28 ounces) fire roasted crushed tomatoes.
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  1. Heat oil in a large (12-inch) skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions; saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garli, cinnamon, cloves, pepper, chilies; saute until fragrant, a minute or so longer.
  2. Add hominy, beans, and tomatoes; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer to thicken and blend flavors, 15 to 20 minutes longer. Stir in cilantro and serve.
Spoon this filling into tacos and serve with your favorite garnishes. We like sliced avocado and sour cream or Greek yogurt.
