This isn't your thick beans and meat sort of chili, but it is absolutely delicious. Think a cross between a soup and a traditional chili. It's pretty healthy too with white meat chicken, hominy, and potatoes.

  1. Saute chicken in oil and butter over high heat in a large pot for 8-10 minutes turning at least once. Remove and cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Set aside.
  2. Add the onions to the pot and cook on medium 3-4 minutes until soft. Stir in garlic and all seasonings, cook for 1 minute. Add tequila and simmer until evaporated, stirring to bring up any drippings from the bottom of the pan.
  3. Stir in the broth and the potatoes and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 12 minutes. Add the chicken, hominy, poblano, and salt, and simmer until heated through.
  4. Serve into bowls and garnish with cilantro, sour cream, and avocado as desired.
  5. Note: if serving children, reserve the poblano peppers and use them as a garnish along with the cilantro, sour cream and avocado. The poblanos really make this dish for the adults, so don't eliminate them altogether!

      I had this on day two at the office and it was wonderful; even better with extra peppers and cilantro on top. Great comfort food.

        Excellent. Not overwhelmingly spicy. Hominy was a great touch.
