  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 12 grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 cups hominy, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups black beans, drained and rinsed

Directions
1 Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2 Heat the olive oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until sizzling and fragrant. Add the onion, chilies, chipotle peppers, chili powder, sea salt and cumin.

3 Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, until the onions begin to caramelize. Stir in the stock, tomatoes, hominy and black beans, and simmer gently for 30 minutes.
