This is amazing Pozole. My kids love it and ask me to make it all the time. I learned to make it from my kids grandmother when we were visiting in Mexico. For the enchilada sauce try using my recipe. Enjoy!

I added extra cumin. 1 tsp instead of just 1/4 tsp. I love cumin though. It might be a bit strong for some. Some people don't like the smell. :D
