1 onion finely chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups chicken broth
2 lbs cooked shredded chicken*
1/3 cup chicken gravy mix
3 cans (7 oz each) mild diced green chilies
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (Add more if you like it hot!)
1 can (28 oz) white hominy drained
Flour tortillas / quesadillas
In a large pot, sauté onions and garlic in a little olive oil. After just a couple minutes add chicken broth. Use a whisk to blend gravy mix into the broth. Then add chilies, cilantro, cumin, jalapenos, and hominy. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; then reduce heat to low.
Add shredded chicken while simmering. Prepare sides and serve. Delish!
*Just a note on the chicken. Rotisserie chicken from Costco is fast, but not very good for you. (I still pick them up sometimes, how can I help it!?!) Another option is grilling your chicken and then put all your breasts in the kitchen aid and mix. It shreds the chicken like a champ, even while it is steaming hot! Be careful not to over mix or you will end up with chicken burger!
