    Starman5's Note:

    I think posole is like chili and gumbo, instead of eating it hot off the stove, the taste improves if you let the pot cool on the stove for about two hours, then put it in the refrigerator overnight, which allows the flavors time to blend and set. The Posole (chili, gumbo) can then be transferred into smaller containers or plastic bags for storage and reheated as needed. This recipe freezes well with little loss of flavor or texture. I usually make a double recipe, and after cooling overnight in the refrigerator, transfer the posole into glass Mason jars and store in the freezer and unthaw as needed.

      Terrific, easy-to-follow recipe. I couldn't find the specific types of chili powder so just used 1 T. of regular chili powder and it was delicious and plenty spicy. I made the entire recipe and served 10 nice sized servings.

      I cut the recipe in half for me and DH. He loved it; I thought it was too spicy, but loved the blend of all the flavors. I will make this again with less pepper - DH can add his own!! Made for Spring 2012 PAC
