Our Chipotle Heirloom Tomato Soup fast-tracks this traditional Mexican stew adding flavor and substance. Wonderful as is or make it a hearty meal for a crowd by adding a cup or two of cooked beans, shredded chicken, or pulled pork.
Cook pepper with a tablespoon of water over low heat in a large saucepan, covered, for five minutes, until soft. (Sweating the pepper makes it sweet.)
Add the soup and hominy - including liquid and simmer 8-10 minutes.
Add your choice of mix-ins. Add up to 1/2 cup water if it needs thinning.
Stir in greens and cook to soften a minute or so (depending on greens).
Serve in bowls with desired toppings.
