Hominy, made from dried corn kernels, is a great filling for tacos when you cook it until it's crispy. Add creamy avocado slices and a few crumbles of queso fresco to each of these vegetarian tacos before digging in.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place avocado halves in a small bowl. Add lime juice and 1/4 tsp. of the salt; coarsely mash with a fork.

  • In a large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium. Add the hominy to the hot oil and cook, without stirring, 4 to 5 minutes or until browned and beginning to crisp on one side (watch for spattering). Remove skillet from heat and stir in the ground ancho pepper, cumin, and remaining 1/4 tsp. salt.

  • Divide the avocado mixture among the tortillas. Top the crispy hominy, nopalitos, and queso fresco.
