Hominey, Chickpea and Bell Pepper Soup

This soup had great, full-bodied flavor largely due to the chickpea curry mixture from last night. I also loved the chew of the chickpea's and hominey. I loved hominey as a little girl and i really don't know why more recipes don't call for it. This took 20 minutes start to finish. I served the soup with toasted baguette slices drizzled with EVOO and a Bell's Oberon.
