Mexican Bison Stew
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 3; let cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Skim any fat from the top, reheat and finish with Step 4.
Note: Hominy is white or yellow corn treated with lime to remove the tough hull and germ. Canned cooked hominy can be found in the Latin section of large supermarkets--near the beans--or at Latin markets.
Tip: Look for chayote in well-stocked supermarkets or Mexican grocers.
