White Bean Hominy Chili

Today marks 5th day my little buddy has had a fever.  As a first grader, he's pretty cute to have around the house and easy since he just wants to hang on the couch and play the kindle.  We've gotten some good reading and drawing time in, too.  Seriously, winter sicknesses have knocked us out hard this year!

So I'm going to warm up with another soup.  I'm hungry right now and wish I had some leftovers to heat up.  

White Bean Hominy Chili

1 onion, diced
1 jalepeño, seeded, deveined, and diced
2 poblanos, diced OR 1 can green chilies
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp cumin
1/4 cup lime juice OR 2 limes, juiced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
3 cups broth
1 (29 oz) can hominy, drained and rinsed
3 (15 oz) cans white beans, drained and rinsed
salt and pepper to taste

Add onion, jalepeño, and (if using) poblanos to chili pot and sauté.  Once onions are translucent, add garlic and sauté for another minute.  Add green chilies (if not using poblanos), cumin, lime juice, cilantro, broth, hominy, and beans.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Get out blender and pureé half the chili and then add back to the pot.  Heat and eat!

As a random side note, I recently found "100 Days of Real Food" and I love it!  She lists the definition of "healthy food" and I think it's spot on.
