Hominy with Tomatoes - Adapted from Food.com

We were looking for something to do with much maligned hominy and decided on this.  Hominy has a nice corn taste and a firm "bite".  Give it a try.  Start by browning 2 strips of bacon.  Crumble them and set aside.  In the bacon fat, saute 1/4C diced onion.  When the onion has softened add 2 cloves minced garlic, 1T ground cumin, 1t ground coriander and 1t ground cardamom.  Continue heating until the spices are fragrant.  Drain the excess fat and add a 14 oz can of drained hominy and a 14 oz can of drained diced tomatoes.  Add the bacon back to the dish, top with shredded cheese and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 min.  Finish under the broiler to brown the cheese.  It was a wonderful accompaniment to the creamy chicken enchiladas and re-fried beans, which have been here before
