Cumin Chicken Hominy Stew

Mi amor with his football food!


My husband loves Sunday.  Sunday involves rest, relaxation and FOOTBALL!!  My husband also looks forward to FOOTBALL food!!  Messy, saucy, comfort, stick to your behind football food.  He loves it all!

Mi amor lives for Sundays, after a stressful week at work.   Every day of the week he drives, he drives and he drives some more visiting his clients.

Social Work is stressful (had I shared?) and Football gives him the  joyful recharge for the next week.  Did I mention he’s loud, really loud when his teams scores, a flag is thrown or when his team loses their lead.

Football food has really evolved over the years.  As newlyweds I often served pizza, hot dogs or hamburgers not realizing the food added to the excitement.  Flash forward 12 years and I find myself orgainzing football recipe ideas in basketball season.

I was prepped to grill when a HUGE package appeared on my doorstep.  Inside was the preview to the new line Cocinaware from H-E-B. I was more than excited as the line is Latina inspired which made this gal very happy. Each piece blended perfectly with my current  kitchen theme.  At the bottom of the package there was a lovely yellow Dutch Oven waiting for me.  Happy Dance!! I have several Dutch Ovens and any home cook knows they rock!!  My grilling mission was put on hold to test out my new dutch oven. A hearty chicken stew with cumin, white beans and hominy with a hefty sprinkle of cilantro.  Ladle large spoons of this steamy stew and top with cheese, crema, jalapenos and crispy tortillas.  Enjoy!

The new Cocinaware line from H-E-B.  A Mexican inspired line that comes in bold, vibrant colors!!   The Dutch Oven was my favorite piece.  Quick even heating.  Easily moves from stove to oven, but stunning for service at your table.

    Oh, I could go for some of that right now. Never actually seen hominy, I wonder if we can even get it around here…

    That’s so sweet, your football food evolution =). & the Cocinaware line is gorgeous, you lucky woman!

    Ooooo, your hubby! Neato! Y’know, funny thing is, I’ve only eaten hominy in a dessert. It was delicious, I wonder what it’ll taste like in a savoury dish ;] I wish that I liked football.

    I keep forgetting we both live in the Houston area! The Texas game was good wasn’t it? My hubby lives for football the same way and every weekend I am thinking of any and everything to cook to celebrate all the games we watch. This hominy looks amazing!

    Oh my gosh…I ADORE that Cocinaware! And I would adore it even more were it to contain some of that fantastic stew. And I would love it even more on my table, with the stew, while watching football 😉 Beautiful post!

    Delicioso!! Would love to try that hominy stew. I make sweet hominy dessert, so a stew would be interesting! Love the cocinaware, very cheerful colors.

    Oh my word- your husband is one lucky man. He sounds like he’s got an appetite to rival mine ( I don’t call him The Hungry One because I ran out of cute nicknames). Have just spent the most delightful hour trawling through your archives- thank you so much for the distraction!
