    About this recipe: This is a simple recipe for the traditional Mexican stew/soup. It takes less than 30 minutes to make from scratch and tastes fab. Chicken is simmered with spices, hominy (hulled corn), chillies and olives in a chicken stock. Enjoy during the cold winter months.

    1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine oil, onion, garlic, oregano and cumin. Cook, covered, 5 minutes, until onions are tender.
