Posole, Tex-mex Style

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Julie in TX

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.

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!
