Chicken Stew with Hominy and Green Chiles
- Active Time 10m
- Total Time 5h
Here we add a little rice at the end of the cooking to help thicken the juices and add some body to the broth. If you prefer to leave out the rice, thicken the juices slightly by ladling a little of the broth into a bowl, stirring in a tablespoon of tomato paste, then adding liquid back to the stew during the last 10 minutes of cooking.

- 1 onion, chopped
