2.
Add the remaining oil to the saucepot and reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and garlic and cook until they're tender.
3.
Stir the broth, cumin, chipotle pepper, tomatoes and hominy in the saucepot. Heat to a boil. Return the pork to the saucepot and reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 35 minutes or until the pork is cooked through and tender. Garnish with the cilantro.
Tip:

Hominy is dried white or yellow corn kernels with the germ and hull removed. When canned, it's ready-to-eat. The form of ground hominy is also known as corn grits or simply grits.
