Cheesy Hominy & Green Chile Casserole

 Christmas dinner with friends...

Kevin cooked up a ham!

I knew the perfect side dish to go with ham-- a creamy, cheesy green chile and hominy dish.

While pulling out the ingredients, I realized that I had run out of cumin powder.  Luckily I had plenty of cumin seeds.  Freshly ground spices taste better anyway...

Cheesy Hominy & Green Chile Casserole
1 medium white onion, chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
olive oil (for sautéing the onions & garlic)
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chiles
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
3/4-1 (8-12 oz)cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided in half
1/4 cup milk
1 28 oz can hominy, drained


Preheat the oven to 350° F.

In a cast iron pan, sauté the chopped onion and garlic in oil until tender.

Add the cumin and green chiles.

 Mix in the sour cream and half of the cheese.

Stir in the milk.

Add the hominy and mix well. 

Sprinkle remaining cheese.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° F for 30 minutes.

Serve warm to enjoy the gooey goodness.

If thisn't wasn't being served with ham, it would be  super delicious with chunks of ham mixed into it.
