Perini Ranch Steakhouse Jessica's
Favorite Green Chile Hominy

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped onion, sautéed
  • 4 (15 ounce) cans white hominy (drain and reserve liquid)
  • 1/2 cup hominy liquid
  • 1 tablespoon juice from pickled jalapenos
  • 1/2 pound Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 10 slices bacon, fried crisp and chopped (reserve drippings)
  • 1 cup fresh seeded and chopped poblano or Anaheim peppers
  • 1 or 2 pickled jalapenos, seeded and chopped (optional)


  1. Sauté the onions in a little of the bacon drippings and put aside.
  2. Heat the hominy in a separate sauté pan, stirring often. When heated thoroughly, add the hominy liquid and jalapeno juice, bring back to high temperature and add 3/4 of the cheese. When the cheese melts, add half the peppers and bacon and all the onion.
  3. Pour into a 9 x 13-inch baking pan and sprinkle with the remaining cheese, bacon and peppers. (At this point it can be refrigerated or even frozen, if you want to make it in advance.)
  4. Bake at 325 degrees F until cheese on top melts, about 15 minutes (or 40 minutes, if refrigerated).

Serves 10 to 12.
