This is a fantastic winter dish. Shredded chicken is slowly cooked with tomatoes, hominy (hulled corn) and chilli beans in a seasoned chicken stock.
Tinned white hominy and tinned diced green chillies can be purchased in Hispanic speciality shops or online. Alternatively, substitute in tinned sweetcorn for the hominy. Fresh green chillies, to taste, can be substituted in place of the tinned diced green chillies.
Excellent with a couple of changes. After shredding the leftover chicken I took the leftover bones and boiled them with carrots, garlic ect. Used that broth for the soup and then added one package of chicken taco seasoning to the soup. It was great! - 23 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

My Fiance and I loved this dish. We were running out of ideas for our leftovers and this was the perfect change up. We don't care for hominy so I left it out and added a can of white beans instead. - 24 Sep 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
