It is one of those Santa Fe unexpected snowy days. I’m sitting home, expecting a friend for lunch, not sure what to make. I look in my pantry, I have some hominy and beans, and I thought, corn chaff, but I thought the traditional corn chaff is too heavy. I looked into my freezer, there was some shrimp and cat fish, and I thought I can come up with sea food corn chaff and that is what I did. I wish I had some lobster tails or crab meat to throw into the mix.
I think it came out good and I had a good lunch and visit with my friend.
