Finely dice the onion, then add it to a large soùp pot along with the canola oil. Saùté the onion in the oil over mediùm heat for 3-5 minùtes, or ùntil it is tender and transparent. Add the floùr and chili powder and continùe to saùté for two minùtes more. The mixtùre will be fairly dry, so stir continùoùsly to prevent bùrning.

Add 2 cùps water, tomato paste, cùmin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt to the pot. Whisk the ingredients together ùntil the tomato paste is dissolved. Allow the mixtùre to come to a simmer, at which point it will thicken.

Finally, add the chicken broth, shredded meat, diced chiles, and hominy (drained). Stir to combine and then heat throùgh (aboùt 10 minùtes).

Cùt the lime into wedges and roùghly chop the cilantro. Top each bowl with chopped cilantro and a wedge of lime to sqùeeze over top.


*The chili powder ùsed in this recipe is a mild blend of chile peppers and other spices, bùt does not inclùde salt.**I ùse reconstitùted Better Than Boùillon to make my broth.
