Add onion and jalapeños to stockpot; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in broth, hominy, tomatoes and epazote, if desired. Return beef to stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until beef is fork-tender.
Add zucchini and 1/4 cup cilantro; continue to simmer 5 minutes or until zucchini is tender. If using fresh epazote, remove and discard stem and any large leaves.
