      Though I didn't try this recipe, I can say from reviewing it that in New Mexico we don't use celery, canned green chile, or chile powder in our Green Chile Pork Posole. Canned green chile = boring - but if that's all you can score then it beats no chile though you won't get any flavor from it. You might as well use bell pepper. It is well worth the investment to purchase Hatch Green Chile and that can be done on the internet - avoid the canned if at all possible for the true authentic flavor of Green Chile Posole.

      The other ingredients are good in this recipe, but add a bay leave, cumin, and oregano (to taste) to the mix while it simmers. Also, thicken the broth a bit towards the end with flour or cornstarch mixed with a bit of water to thicken the broth to desired consistency.

      Serve with lime wedges, cilantro, and flour (preferably fresh/homemade) tortillas warmed on the griddle or gas stove burner!

      Delicious and easy to make, what could be better! Tasted very traditional and the spices were perfect. This is going into the favorites cookbook! Made for the Vivacious Violets for ZWT7.
