Stuffed Green Chilis with Hominy Coulis

This is a terrific savory vegetarian entree from Red Mountain Spa in Utah.  It has a lengthy list of ingredients, so while not a quick entree, it’s worth the effort. The colors and depth of flavor make it very satisfying, and with two chilis per person, it’s filling.  It’s also a recipe which is fun to prepare with friends and family.

The sauces can be ahead and stored until you are ready to prepare the stuffed chilis. You can also omit 1 or 2 of the sauces and substitute a few creamy slices of avocado.  If you prefer stuffed bell peppers instead of green chilis, by all means make the swap!
