Foodie Crush Spicy Chicken and Hominy Soup

It’s been one sorry, sorry, SORRY winter for snow. Usually by this time of year I’ve had my snow shovel out at least 8 times and have created at least 4 snowmen. But this year I haven’t even dusted off my snow boots. And that bums me out because they’re cute. And warm. And I love ‘em.

So just when I’ve finished all my kvetching about no snow and finally weaned myself from the longing for a big old fashioned winter dump, what happens? It snows this morning. Really? Really you swarmy groundhog Punxsutawney Phil? I was finally dreaming of blossoming cherry trees, swimming pools and lemonade and here we go, more winter. I wonder if the Leap Year had anything to do with it. Hmmm, a metaphysical diabolical scheme.

Luckily, I had a quick and easy winter soup recipe at the ready. 


I had already made plans today to skip on over into my soupness thanks to Cheryl at TidyMom and Kristen at Dine & Dish‘s 2nd Annual SoupaPalooza event, so I had all the ingredients ready to roll for din-din tonight. You really need to check out their SoupaPalooza entries, there’s enough soup recipes posted to make the Soup Nazi a little nervous.

If you haven’t already,  create a soup and come join SoupaPalooza at TidyMom and Dine & Dish sponsored by KitchenAidRed Star Yeast and Le Creuset. You don’t even need to have a blog to enter, just a tasty recipe.

The recipe I’m rockin’ at Soupapalooza is from the famed Golden Door Spa, with an outpost right here at the Waldorf Astoria in Park City, Utah. It delivers all the goodness one needs for a flavor-packed, healthy meal—sadly, it doesn’t include ingredients for a handsome masseuse and aromatherapy spa treatment. It’s got a kick from the smokey chipotle pepper and even with a longer list of ingredients, comes together and is ready for the table in about 3o minutes. Perfect for a weeknight soup supper.

Choose to top the soup with the toasted tortillas—or not. The soup is so flavor packed you won’t miss them. This go-around I skipped the tortilla topper, but they do add a toasty missing crunch to the soupy soup.

Gorgeous looking soup and I havent made many soups this year so have little to offer this challenge but wow, I’m being inspired to cook more soups!

Looks like a must try soup. I have never eaten hominy.

We’ll try your soup here at the ranch! Some creative deliciousness to go with our avocados…and feed the hungry farmers who come in looking for lunch!

Mmmmm, hominy! What a great and filling addition to a soup. This looks great– I can’t wait to try it (minus the chicken, naturally…) and warm myself out of this weird winter.

This was the best soup I’ve made in a long time. The only decision I had to make was whether to drain and rinse the hominy, which I did. The soup turned out great.
