Pesto
  • Just before chili is done cooking, combine cilantro, pumpkin seeds, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and lime juice in a mini chopper or with a mortar and pestle. Process until fairly smooth, scraping down sides often.

  • Remove chicken from slow cooker and shred with 2 forks. Stir shredded chicken back into slow cooker along with remaining 1/4 tsp salt, hominy and cannellini beans. Spoon into bowls and top with sour cream or plain yogurt and cilantro pesto.

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
