Spicy Hominy and Oats

I am one of those people who swear by oatmeal for breakfast. Sure there are other breakfast options out there, but none are as creamy and satisfying as a warm bowl of oats. For years I tweaked my morning bowl, from peanut butter and jelly oatmeal to maple, walnut and raisin oatmeal and pumpkin pie oatmeal. There was one common theme though, sugar. Like most people I was stuck in the sweet oatmeal rut. As delicious as it was, I wanted to try something new. My first attempt was egg, cheese and peanut butter oats but after making peanut butter chili, I found a new favorite ingredient: hominy. It’s not all that strange when you think about it – grits are just ground up hominy, so this is like combining two breakfast grains only better because of the outstanding texture of hominy. I’ve never had such creamy oatmeal, making this one a new favorite. Even the heat outside doesn’t deter me from this hot and spicy breakfast. Oh, how sweet it isn’t!


1/3 cup rolled oats
1 cup skim milk
1/3 cup hominy (Juanita’s) or beans
2T Spicy Peanut Butter
1T buffalo wing sauce
salt, pepper to taste
PB2, as needed to thicken


1. Combine milk and oats in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Add hominy and microwave for 1 more minute. Stir in peanut butter, hot sauce, salt and pepper. If too thick, add milk to reach desired consistency. If too thin, add PB2 to thicken.
