1/2 Photos of Posole (Mexican soup with pork and hominy)
1 hr 20 mins
This recipe was taught to me by my friend Mary, who was raised in Mexico, when she learned that I didn't like Menudo. She adds a whole jalepeno to the recipe, but that's to hot for me. The prep and cook time doesn't include cook time for the pork.
