Crock-Pot Tomatillo Hominy Chili

Crock Pot Tomatillo Hominy Chili
There's just something about chili. It's easy fairly inexpensive and healthy to boot. 
If you've been reading the blog for sometime you'll know I've done several twists on chili from Darn Good Chili to Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Pumpkin Ale Chili, it's a mouthful but worth every wonderful bite! 
I adapted Tomatillo Hominy Chili from my Chicken Chili Verde . I was looking for something with a little less maintenance and crock-pot friendly.
This chili has a nice twist from traditional with roasted tomatillos and hominy. 
When Colt and I were first living together I bought yellow hominy at the store on accident instead of canned corn.
I hadn't realized my mistake until I had opened the cans to find something that looked a little like corn but had a different texture and was much larger. 
Needless to say I avoided hominy for the next 15 years until I ordered a Tomatillo Soup from the cafe in Nordstoms. I had no clue at first it was hominy but after further inspection I asked the waiter to confirm these little puffy pieces were white hominy.
Defiantly not what my mind recalled and I am sure it helped being slow cooked in a broth along with other ingredients! 

Shrimp Scampi

Friday, April 12, 2013
This recipe was shared in the very early days of this blog.

Can you believe it's been almost 2 years?

Time has really flown by and I am so thankful for each and everyone of you. You are such wonderful friends to have. You are all simply amazing!
This recipe has been long over due for a new picture but every time we enjoyed it for dinner I lacked enough light outside by the time dinner was done and I couldn't find a better excuse to make this for dinner then I needed to update the picture.

I almost always have the ingredients on hand to make this meal.

Shrimp Scampi is a delicious meal in under 30 minutes, perfect for a busy weeknight yet I make this quite often for company too.

If you make this your taste buds will thank you!
This was my Hubby's Father's Day requested dinner. It was delicious as always.

He is an amazing man who at this very moment has torn apart my kitchen to fix the back splash for my new stove.  

This is a pretty quick meal to put together and full of flavor!
