American Southwest Pumpkin Soup

    35 min

    As strange as most people find this soup sounds, there is a resounding response... Everyone LOVES it. It may be hard to find hominy, which is a form of maize (look online). If you cannot find hominy, use tinned cannellini or butter beans instead.

    Delicious. I added more s&p. Keep extra chicken stock handy for leftovers. It thickens up quite a bit  -  18 Nov 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
