  • 3 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, (2 14-ounce cans), divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground red chile, or chili powder

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oregano and ground chile (or chili powder) and cook for 1 minute. Add hominy and the remaining 3 1/4 cups broth, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
