2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves of minced garlic
2 tablespoons of flour of your choice
1 cup milk (can use heavy cream for thicker sauce)
8 ounces shredded white cheddar
4 slices bacon diced and cooked
4 ounces diced jalapeños
1 pound hominy
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium size saucepan melt the butter. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
Stir in the flour stirring constantly until combined keeping the burner on low heat. This will create a thick paste. Continue stirring for 3 minutes.
Add in the milk or cream, whisking to combine, increase to medium heat. Stir frequently for 4-5 minutes until thick.
Add in the cheese slowly while stirring. Reduce to low heat. Stir until the cheese is melted.
Add the hominy into the saucepan to mix with the sauce. Add in the diced jalapeño and diced cooked bacon. Transfer to quart size baking dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes.
Serve warm and enjoy!
