Video: Hominy, Hominy, Hominy February 24, 2014 in cooking, Vegetarian, video Homi-what? It's hominy. It's basically corn that's been treated to puff up, sort of like wet popcorn. It works great as a hearty, beefy stand-in for chickpeas or other beans. Works greats in stews, taco filling, or Tortilla Soup with Hominy. Uploaded by Katie Simmons on 2014-02-21.
