  • 1 tb olive oil extra-virgin
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts (we like to marinate hours in Italian dressing for at least half a day)
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 cup salsa verde
  • 3 cup chicken stock
  • 14.5 oz hominy drained and rinsed
  • 11 oz corn drained
  • 3/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 scallions finely sliced


  • grated cheddar cheese
  • avocado cubed
  • sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add marinaded chicken to hot oil. Season both sides with cumin, chili powder and salt and pepper. Sear for 4-5 minute. Repeat to both sides of the chicken until cooked through. Set aside and let cool for about 5 minutes, then cube..

  2. In a large pot, heat up your salsa verde. Add chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Add your corn, hominy and chicken. Let simmer 5-10 minutes. Add the cilantro and scallions. Simmer another two minutes.
  3. Just before serving, garnish soup with avocado, cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and more cilantro.
