Using simple pantry ingredients with tons of flavor — including creamed corn, sautéed peppers and cream of onion soup — gives this dish its layers of seasoning. Hominy, a not-so-secret ingredient, brings everything together.
What is hominy? To put it simply, it’s large, starchy, whole kernels of corn that have been treated with lye to soften their outer hulls. Typically cooked and canned in liquid, they add a nutty-sweet corn flavor to Mexican-style cuisine or, in this case, our vegetable casserole.
In addition to this special ingredient, we use Minute® Instant White Rice to bind this casserole together and absorb the flavors of the savory onion soup and creamed corn.
