Sautéed Hominy with Bacon & Tomato
If you’ve never heard of hominy before, don’t shy away from it. Hominy is corn kernels that have been soaked in a lime solution and are often used to make masa. Full of corn flavor, and cooked with familiar flavors like bacon, tomato, and cilantro, this simple side dish comes together in no time and is so savory, you may want to have a second can of hominy on hand, just in case. This recipe easily doubles, just be sure to use a large sauté pan.
Cook bacon in oil in a sauté pan until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
Off heat, stir in cilantro and lime juice; season hominy with salt.
