Zucchini Corn Medley

One day when I was a girl, a neighbor brought over a dish similar to this one. I hadn't had it in 20 years but kept thinking about the fabulous flavor combination, so I decided to re-create it. I don't know it it's the same, but my family likes it today as much as I did back then.--Marian Quaid-Maltagliati, Nipomo, California

Really tasty. I sauted some onions first, added in the zucchini, some garlic and then tossed in the hominy. I used more hominy and more zucchini and left out the corn. I used wedge of garlic herb cheese and cooked this on the stovetop.. delish!

This was great. I changed it a little based on what I had at home. I used cheddar cheese and mixed it in the vegetables and added cayenne pepper instead of jalapenos. This was absolutely delicious. I will definitely make this again and again.
