Quick & easy. I did not have hominy. I used a 12 oz bag of frozen corn instead. Entire family enjoyed this. Will definitely add this to our meal rotation!

I made this with canned hominy and thought it was a good substitute for chili with beans.

Sounds great, but I've never cooked with hominy before. What kind, dried, or canned do I use? Dietitian comment: Hominy is most available canned. Rinse well to remove some of the sodium if canned in salt water.

I am a vegan vegetarian. A vegan vegetarian way to alter chili recipe would be helpful for my diet and others who like this lifestyle. Are beans hard on kidneys? My sister told me who is a registered nurse in Michigan told me kidney beans were good for your kidneys is she wrong? How about brown rice? I ea a lot of raw fruit and veggies. I drank corn silk tea made from Indian corn when I had Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 3 now its at Stage2 and my GFR has been 71 since May 2013. SiewertPC Dietitian comment: I often use the soy veggie crumble instead of ground meat, but another lower sodium option is tempeh, a fermented soybean product. Here's an article on DaVita,com with soy product info: Beans are quite high in potassium and phosphorus, but would not be restricted in stage 2 CKD as the kidneys are able to remove excess amounts.

First recipe I tried and found it to be easy and delicious. I did cut back on the amount of onion and garlic to suit our taste.
