Hearty Hominy Beef Stew

October 31, 2021

“We like to top our soup with some sliced avocado for extra flavor and a little more creaminess,” Rita Morgan of Pueblo says.


Place onion in a lightly greased slow cooker; top with beef. Sprinkle with salt. Add green pepper, carrots, celery and garlic to slow cooker. Pour tomatoes with juice and 3/4 cup broth over all. Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours. In a bowl, mix together cornstarch and remaining broth until smooth; stir into slow cooker during the last 15 minutes of cooking. Stir in hominy and heat through.
