American Southwest Pumpkin Soup

    35 minutes

    As weird as most people find this soup sounding, there is a resounding response. Everyone LOVES it. Also, it may be hard to find hominy, which is a form of corn maize, here in Australia. My solution is to replace it with a white bean.

    Delicious. I added more s&p. Keep extra chicken stock handy for leftovers. It thickens up quite a bit  -  18 Nov 2013
