Hominy Meatball Stew

60 mins (prep 20, cooking 40)
12 ingredients
8 servings
I found this recipe in the TOH's 2009 The Best Of Country Cooking Annual Recipes. It was sent into them by Diane Tennison of Lafayette, Louisiana. She wrote in her description " For a less spicy version,substitute plain canned tomatoes for the Mexican blend " . But since I wanted just a bit of spice, I used one can of Ro-Tel and one can of fire roasted diced tomatoes with garlic.For the taco seasoning I used Mucho Gusto Taco Seasoning Mix.This recipe calls for making your own meatballs, but if you are in a hurry I'm sure thawed frozen ones would work as well. After making the meatballs,fry a little bit of the meat to see if you want to add a bit of oregano and or garlic. Submitted to " ZAAR " on February 24th., 2010.UPDATE on 3/18/10: I found out that this freezes and reheats very well :). If you like you can add garnishes of fried tortilla strips,green onions and sour cream.
