      Tried this last night - Wow! This was absolutely fantastic!! On a cold night, this is your perfect go to comfort food. No other Posole recipe has come close to the deliciousness and authentic quality of this one. On first glace it may appear to be a lot of work but it is really quite simple. May take a little time but the end result is well worth it. If you are looking for a family or crowd pleasing soup, this one can not be beat! We are looking forward to having this again. Posole cooked to perfection. I would not change a thing!
