Tomatillo, Chicken, and Hominy Soup

This dish is a posole, which is a thick and heart soup perfect for dinner! Never used hominy? It is basically a corn kernel, sold in a can, not much of a taste but adds a nice texture to soups. Tomatillos add a lemony taste - even though the name seems like it should be a tomato I never get much of a tomato taste out of them. They are delish though! This soup is yummy, low points, easy to put together and filling. Top with light sour cream, cilantro and crushed tortillas.

This makes 6 servings

Tomatillo, Chicken & Hominy Soup

The Stuff:

1/2 pound tomatillos, husks and stems discarded
2 shredded chicken breast from this recipe
32 oz low sodium chicken stock
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 small can chopped green chilies
1 large onion chopped
5 garlic cloves chopped
1 jalapeno
1 30oz can hominy drained
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoon cumin
1 cup cilantro

The How To:

Quarter the tomatillos and the jalapeno, remove the jalapeno seeds if you don't like heat

Add 3/4 cup cilantro, the tomatillos and the jalapeno to a food processor or blender, pulse until chopped

Add tomatillo mixture, onions, tomatoes, garlic, chilies to a pot and cook for 10 minutes

Add chicken stock, salt & pepper, and cumin and simmer for 15 minutes until warmed up
Serve up into bowl, top with avocado, remaining cilantro, sour cream, and half chicken breast
Add crushed tortillas and eat up! (you can add all the toppings at once, but I forgot the tortillas so I added them after:))
Weight Watcher Friends: 1 serving is 3 p+, add extra points for your toppings
