Chipotle Summer Vegetable Soup with Hominy

Chipotle Summer Vegetable Soup with Hominy
Chipotle summer vegetable soup with hominy is a great way to use all of those vegetables you just bought at the farmer's market and the roast chicken you bought at the grocery store. The addition of Larry's Chipotle Sauce brings a lot of flavor to this soup. I grew up eating hominy because my mother liked it but it is a common ingredient in the Mexican soup pozole. (If you leave the chicken out of this dish and use vegetable stock, you have a delicious vegetarian dish.)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced zucchini
1 cup green beans, cut into half inch lengths
1 15/16 oz. can hominy, drained
1 16 oz. jar Larry's Chipotle Sauce
16 oz. chicken or vegetable stock or water
2 cups chopped roasted chicken
salt and pepper to taste
Tortilla chips, wedges of lime, sour cream
  • Heat the oil over medium in a four quart pot. Add the vegetables and cook, stirring, for five minutes.
  • Add the hominy, Larry's Chipotle Sauce, and stock.
  • Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add the chicken and cook for five minutes.
  • Add salt and pepper if needed and serve with tortilla chips, a squeeze of fresh lime and a spoonful of sour cream in desired. Serves 4.

Mole Grilled Salmon Barbacoa

Mole Grilled Salmon Barbacoa is a recipe for salmon steaks or fillets, marinated in Larry's Southwestern Mole Sauce and cooked on the backyard barbecue grill, either charcoal or gas or under the broiler. The slightly oily salmon matches really well with the dark rich Mole Sauce making this your go-to fish on the grill recipe.

4 six to eight oz. salmon fillets or steaks
1 teaspoon each salt and black pepper
1 16 oz. jar Larry's Southwestern Mole Sauce
1 tsp. each salt and pepper
2 tblsp vegetable oil
  • Place the salmon in a shallow baking dish or pan. Season with the salt and pepper.
  • Pour 1 cup of Larry's Southwestern Mole Sauce over the fish. Cover with foil and marinate in the refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Prepare your barbecue grill or broiler for medium heat. Clean the grill and brush it with the vegetable oil. For the broiler, lay a sheet of foil on the broiler pan and brush with the vegetable oil.
  • Place the salmon pieces on the grill or broiler pan and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, basting with the marinade.
  • Remove the salmon from the grill or broiler and plate. Heat the remaining mole sauce from the jar and serve on the side.
  • Serves 4.

1 16 oz. jar Larry's Ranchero Sauce
