Serve hot with corn chips, warm flour tortillas or cornbread. Try a lean cut of pork, like center-cut loin, to reduce the fat.

Loved this recipe but I didn't know how to brown the meat in the crockpot so did that on the stove and added to the crockpot along with other ingredients and some extra cayenne & white pepper. Mmmm.... served with baked corn tortilla wedges, some soup toppings like sour cream, olives, lime juice, and with margaritas (ok, lime slushies for the kids) so good!
I have this exact recipe except that it has 4 15.5 oz cans of hominy drained. I used 3 tbsp oil as per my recipe as amount is missing from this one. As well, I brown the meat with the onion and garlic in a large skillet before mixing it with the other ingredients except the hominy in my crockpot. I added the hominy the last two hours of cooking so that the texture didn't go funny and cooked it a total of 8 hours on low.
How can you make posole without hominy? this recipe could be 5 stars with a couple of additions. First a 29 ounce can of drained mexican hominy. Second a can of bean with bacon soup.
