Mexican Pozole

Lean beef with onion, garlic, black pepper, cilantro, stewed tomatoes and hominy. Satisfying and nutritious.

Mexican food has grown in popularity across the U.S. in both the home and restaurants in recent years. When dining out in a Mexican Restaurant, it is possible to make healthy food choices. Mexican cuisine has some very nutritious and healthy main ingredients including corn, beans and chilies. These ingredients are high in fiber and low in fat. However, ingredients added to them are the determining factor between a dietary dream and a nutritional nightmare.

2 pounds lean beef, cubed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup cilantro
1 15-ounce can stewed tomatoes
2 ounces tomato paste
1 1-pound 13-oz. can hominy

Directions
