Mexican flavors predominate in this alternative to traditional bread stuffing.

Look for hominy (corn from which the hull and germ have been removed) next to the canned vegetables.


1 -- (8-inch square pan) cornbread (about 1 pound), cut in 1/2-inch cubes
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon hot chili powder
1 -- (15-ounce) can golden hominy (posole), rinsed and drained
2 -- (4-ounce) cans mild diced green chiles, drained
1 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
1 -- (14-ounce) can low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place cornbread on a baking sheet; bake 10 minutes or until toasted.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onion; poultry seasoning, oregano and chili powder; sauté 5 minutes. Combine onion mixture, cornbread, hominy, chiles, red peppers, chicken broth and water. Toss well. Place in cavity of turkey just before roasting. Or spoon into a 13 x 9-inch casserole dish and bake 20 minutes.
