Mexican Shrimp and Grits

This Mexican-inspired twist on a traditional Southern comfort dish is perfect for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Pleasantly chewy hominy stands in for the usual grits, and Mexican chorizo and poblano pepper lends a bit of heat and smokiness to the broth for this dish.

  • 8 Ounces Mexican chorizo, diced
  • 1/2 Cup diced white onion
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 Teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart clam juice
  • Two 15-ounce cans hominy, such as Goya, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 Cup heavy cream
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish
