Posole, Tex-mex Style

This is a good Tex-Mex recipe for a hearty soup to warm you on a cold winter day. It was first printed in the Junior League Cookbook in the city in which I live. It tastes better the longer it cooks. You can use a crock-pot to cook it. I prefer the hot green chilies, but I was raised on Tex-Mex food and must have a cast iron stomach! I usually serve this with grated cheese on top and cornbread. This soup freezes well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat vegetable oil in deep kettle.
  2. Brown the pork and chopped onion in oil.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for several hours.

Excellent! I added 1 chipoltle pepper and sprinkled the meat with about 1 T chili powder as it was browning. I also substituted 1 can of chicken broth for some of the water. It is even better the next day, if there is any left!

I just recommended this recipe to someone and realized I haven't rated it yet. I loved it and put it my Zaar cookbook where only the recipes I will definately make again go! Thanks for sharing.
