This soup is infused with the soothing scent of cumin. Serve with a salad and Masa Dumplings (page 271).

  •  1 stalk of celery, diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  •  1-2 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  •  1 tablespoon of New Mexico red chili powder
  •  ½ teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  •  1 teaspoon of cumin
  •  ½ teaspoon of coriander
  •  1 teaspoon of Deb’s Seasoning (page 269)
  •  1 teaspoon of salt
  •  1 large can of hominy or two smaller cans, drained and rinsed
  •  1 cans of pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  •  1 can (28 oz) of diced fire-roasted tomatoes, with juices
  •  3 cups of vegetable broth or water
  •  3 tablespoons of masa mixed into
  •  ½ cup of water

In a large soup pot, warm ¼ cup of vegetable broth or 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, celery, carrot, jalapeño and garlic. Sauté until onions are tender about 5 minutes.  Stir in chili powder, red pepper flakes, cumin, coriander, Deb’s seasoning and salt. Add hominy, pinto beans, diced tomatoes and pour in 3 cups of broth or water. At this point, if soup is too thick add water to thin. Turn up heat and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and add masa mixture. Simmer for 30 minutes until soup has reduced to desired thickness.
