  2.  Add in the chorizo and cook for 6-8 minutes, breaking it up into smaller pieces.
  3. Add in the onion, jalapeño, and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring to combine.
  4. Add in the spices, stir to mix and cook for 2 more minutes.
  5. Add in the tomatoes, stir to mix, and cook for 6 more minutes.
  6. Add in the Hominy and beans, half of the cooked bacon, the water or broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Lastly, add in the bunch of cilantro, the chicharrones, and cook for 7-10 more minutes.

SUGGESTION: Serve in bowls and top with fresh-squeezed lime juice.
