RUB fajita seasoning over surface of ribs. Heat large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add ribs and cook, turning, until browned on all sides, about 12 minutes. Add onion, green pepper and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until vegetables are tender, about 2 minutes longer.
STIR in roasted red pepper, chili powder, salt, chicken broth and beef broth. Bring to boil; reduce heat to maintain simmer, cover and cook for 1 ½ hours, or until pork is tender.
REMOVE ribs from soup. Pull off meat, discarding bones; with two forks, coarsely shred meat. Stir meat back into soup, cover and refrigerate overnight.
SKIM off and discard fat from top of soup, when ready to serve. Stir in hominy. Place over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
