This Mexican-style soup is an entire meal. It will keep in the freezer for up to three months. You can make this soup with any pre-cooked chicken or turkey. We used store-bought rotisserie chickens, but leftover Thanksgiving turkey will work just as well. When reheating, the hominy may pop in the microwave, so the soup should be thawed overnight in the refrigerator, then reheated over low heat on the stove.

OMG, this soup is delicious! It's better than the posole that my Mexican friend made me! The cabbage and avocado are the perfect garnishes for this soup. Next time, I'll also put some cilantro and lime in it. I thought 4 cans of hominy was too much so I only used 3 cans. It turned out great! Love this recipe!
