Hominy & Chorizo (Soyrizo) Casserole with Black Beans & Roasted Jalapenos

INGREDIENTS

2 29oz cans hominy (white or yellow or a combo) - drained

3 tomatoes - diced

10 jalapeno peppers (or less if spice bothers you)

4 garlic cloves - minced

1 onion - diced

2 cups black beans - canned or prepared like THIS

1/4 cup sour cream

1 cup milk

4-5 cups of grated cheese

1 12oz package of soyrizo or similar quantity of chorizo

1 cup cilantro - chopped

2 TBS olive oil

IF YOU ARE USING PLAIN CANNED BEANS also add:

2 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt

Extra cheese, diced tomato & cilantro as garnish

DIRECTIONS

If you are using chorizo - fry it up in a pan until it is cooked through.  Try to drain the extra grease & set it aside.  If using soyrizo - no extra step required.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

On your stove top, char the outside of the jalapenos until they blacken.  You can do this directly on the burners or by broiling in the oven.  Once blackened, seal them in Tupperware or wrap them in foil for about 15 minutes.  This will sweat the skin off.  Then, under cool running water, roll the blackened skin away & squeeze off the tops & remove the seeds.  Then - chop the jalapenos finely.

Heat the oil in a large saute pan.  Add the diced onion & minced garlic & saute a minute or two - or until the onion is soft.  Add the tomatoes, jalapenos & soyrizo (or chorizo).  Add the beans (and cumin & chili powder & salt, if using).  Stir.  Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, mix the hominy with the soyrizo/chorizo & bean mix & the milk, sour cream, cilantro and about 2/3 of the cheese.  Grease a large casserole pan or other baking pan & pour the hominy mix in.  Top with the remaining cheese.

Bake for about 30 minutes then increase the temperature to 450 & bake about 20 minutes longer or until the cheese on top is very melted & beginning to turn golden.

Let it rest about 15 minutes before serving.  Garnish with extra cheese and cilantro or chopped tomatoes & jalapeno.
