Original review-1/13/2010
Deliciously spicy, and very warming on a cold, dreary January night. I could not find dried posole, so used canned. Along with the fresh New Mexico chili, I added a chopped, dried New Mexico chili (red) for color (and the seeds for heat). Will try to find the dried hominy for next time. Served with low fat lime tortilla chips. Made for Soup is On in the diabetic forum.

I have made this a few times now, and thanks to Paula for sending me the dried hominy to try. I realized I had never come back here to report that she is right, it IS much better than the canned. Thanks, Paula!

Soooo good! I used a 28 ounce can and an additonal 14 ounce can of white hominy & added a 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes along with the additional broth..& 2 t freshly ground cumin seed. As the crockpot was in use I put the stew in my dutch oven & baked for 1 1/2 hrs at 350 degrees F. 1/2 way through cooking I added an additional cup of julienned long red Aztec peppers (from Canada via Costco LOL). Man. oh man, this is great! DH hung around as I divied the leftovers up - some for me to take on contract trip & some for him. Thank you PaulaG, we will be making this one many times through the winter!

We haven't even had dinner yet but I've been sampling this all afternoon and it's WONDERFUL. I cut the recipe back to serve two ...more like four. Only thing I added to the recipe was one large carrot, and that was more for color and a little cumin! I used frozen hominy and did not have any problem with it cooking. Thanks for a great recipe Paula!

This recipe has a lot of potential, excellent flavor, but I don't think it worked quite as intended. I had simmered the posole for 20 min. or so the night before, to remove the pedicels. Even after 8 hrs. in the crockpot, the kernels were still too hard. But after it stood overnight, it started to "flower". I cooked it another 4 or 5 hours, and it started to get to where it needed to be. I also doubled the amount of meat, and added a bit more broth. Next time, I think I will soak the corn overnight, to see if the stew can be done in the indicated time. The flavors are wonderful.
