Slow Cooker Thursday

Texas Two-Step Stew
Serve this spicy stew with warm four tortillas and cool lime wedges. Sour cream makes a tasty topper.

1. 8 ounce uncooked chorizo sausage
2. 1 medium onion, chopped
3. 1 15-ounce can Mexican-style or Tex-Mex-style chili beans
4. 1 15-ounce can hominy or 1 11-ounce can whole kernel corn with sweet peppers, drained
5. 6-ounce package regular Spanish-style rice mix

1. Remove casings from sausage, if present. In a medium skillet cook sausage and onion over medium heat until sausage is no longer pink. Drain fat. Transfer sausage mixture to a slow cooker. Stir in undrained chili beans, hominy, and the seasoning packet contents from the rice mix, if present (set aside remaining rice mix). Pour 6 cups water over all.

2. Cook on low-heat setting for 4-6 hrs or on high-heat for 2-3 hours. Stir in remaining rice mix. Cook on low-heat setting for 1 hour more.

I wonder if anyone knows about hominy. I grew up on it and it's amazing I never cook with it. My family doesn't even know about hominy. As a good southern girl raised in southeat Texas, I'm ashamed of myself for that. This recipe will rectify that little oversight right away. This sounds wonderful. Wait till I tell Rob and the girls what the white round things are! You're a genius. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This does sound very delish even though I don't care for spicy food! lol My oldest son Shawn loves it though so I'll print out this recipe to give to him:-)

This sounds great! I love Tex-mex. I don't know if i can find chorizo around here though, maybe i could just use ground chicken or turkey.

Sounds just right for the weather here right now. We're in the 60's, which is our low, but at night it gets pretty chilly.

Your recipe sounds awesome.

BTW, I loved your post about Christmas traditions.
