Chicken Chili with Hominy

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chicken_chili_with_hominy.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 1999

Traditional Mexican techniques combine with spicy Southwestern chic for a creamy "white" (chicken) chili. The chili is thickened with corn tortillas, which also contribute to its rich corn flavor.

6 servings, 1 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 55 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place a tortilla directly on a stovetop burner set at medium-low and toast, turning frequently with tongs, until light golden and fragrant, 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Cut tortillas into 1-inch-wide strips and set aside.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil to pan. Add bell peppers and onion; season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add chiles, garlic, chili powder, cumin and oregano; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chicken broth and milk and bring to a simmer, stirring. Stir in reserved tortilla strips, chicken and hominy.
  4. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and chili has thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup cilantro. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve with remaining cilantro and lime wedges.
