Ridiculously easy and very tasty. The recaito adds a surprising and authentic depth of flavor for a jar sauce.

THANK YOU for this recipe! I'm tucking into a bowl right now. I grew up in Colorado with grandmothers who could whip up a batch of delicious posole with their eyes closed. Now that I'm an adult & moved far from home...I always wish I could make some of the dishes they did. This posole is pretty close & I'm in heaven right now. =) I let the pork cook overnight 10-11 hours & found that a soupy consistency was already waiting for me, no broth needed. I just added a dash of salt & pepper - perfection!

I didn't make the recipe quite the same. I added two ingredients. About 2 - 3 tbs of pureed Chitpoltle peppers in Adobo sauce (Embasa), and about 2 - 3 cups Chicken stock/broth/base so make it a bit more soupy. I used Better than bullion Chicken base for that.<br/><br/>Flavor is outstanding. Easiest Pozole recipe by far.
