Add seasoning mix, vegetable mix and garlic. Saute until vegetables start to soften, about 10 min. Add spaghetti sauce, 1 c. of chicken broth, hominy and black beans; cover and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally for about 20 min. (Start with 1 c. of chicken broth and add more during simmering if mixture seems too thick.) To serve, remove bay leaf, pour into large bowl with a dollop of sour cream, sprinkle with cheese and serve with warm tortillas (thick type not rolling type). Also good over rice. Makes 10 servings.
