1(If using a cast iron skillet, you can do all these steps in the one pan)

2Brown chopped bacon in pan then remove, leaving grease in the skillet.

3Cook onions in the reserved bacon fat until golden brown, then remove.

4Strain the hominy, but retain a small amount of the liquid. On low heat, add hominy and it's remaining liquid to the pan to heat through.

5Once heated, increase heat to medium, add in the poblano and hatch chiles, sour cream, onions, paprika, salt, half the cheese and half the bacon.

6If using a casserole/oven proof dish, transfer the mix at this stage.

7Sprinkle remaining cheese & bacon on top, and bake for 15 mins in a 320f/160c oven. If you're re-heating a prepared casserole from the fridge, bake 45 min.
