RECIPE BACKSTORY
As you can see from the picture, its not exactly a pretty dish, but it sure tastes good! This came from the Ft. Worth Star Telegram, not sure if the feature was cooking from the can or "so easy a man could make". Next time I might add some diced green pepper for color. Also, I did add some creole seasoning to the dish as I was not quite sure where the "creole" was in the dish. Serves 6 to 8 (I made half a pan with a 15 oz can hominy).
