Zachary Taylor Hominy and Chicken Soup

Zachary Taylor and his beloved war horse "Old Whitey" supposedly shared a love of hominy. Not wanting to request special treatment, General Taylor would let his horse roam around and "sniff out the freshest corn from among the many musty sacks of rations." After Old Whitey had chewed a hole through the sweetest-smelling sack, Taylor would reportedly ask the cooks to quickly whip up a batch since the sack had already been gnawed open! This quick and easy recipe is adapted from epicurious.com.

3 tablespoons olive oil
3 bunches green onions, sliced
4 teaspoons ground cumin
2 1/2 teaspoons paprika
8 cups chicken broth
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can tomatoes in juice
1 purchased roast chicken, meat shredded, skin and bones discarded
3 (15-ounce) cans golden or white hominy in juice
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add green onions, cumin, and paprika and sauté for 5 minutes.

Add broth, tomatoes with juice, and chicken. Puree hominy with juice in processor or blender. Mix into soup and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in cilantro. Serve warm and enjoy!
