The temperature is dropping, and just the other day we had snow fall on the high peaks for the first time this season. It's time to warm up with a little Baja-inspired recipe that Travis whips up, no matter the time of year! 



  • 2 lbs chicken, beef, or pork
  • 4-6 fresh tomatillos
  • 1 onion
  • 4-6 cloves garlic
  • 4-6 roasted green chili
  • 1 tablespoon spoon cumin
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tablespoon Mexican oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 cups stock (chicken or vegetable)
  • 1 can hominy
  • limes


Saute onion and tomatillos until browned in olive oil. Then, brown meat of your choice. Sometimes I use a beef roast and brown each side. Peel and de-seed the green chiles. I buy them fresh-roasted from local markets but you can also find frozen or jar green chili. Put the stock, spices, onion, tomatillos, chiles, and meat into a crock pot. Squeeze 1-2 limes into the stock. Salt and pepper. Leave the hominy out. Let it cook on low in a crock pot for 10 hours. Add the drained hominy at the last hour or later.

"I free-form this recipe all the time tend to go heavy on cumin. It's hard to go wrong—just go with your flavor preferences." – Travis

Serve with tortillas of your choice, queso fresco, limes, and cilantro. Enjoy!
