"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."
"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!"
"YUM!! I did add some chicken broth to give it that soupy consistency. I will definitely make this again."
"YUM! SOOOO easy! I love recaito and when I saw this simple recipe I knew it would be a hit. I've never had hominy before and I LOVED it. It has a taste I've had in tamales, etc. A do over recipe. Thanks Barb! (I added sour cream and hot sauce to mine and it just brought it over the top although it was good as is too!)"
"I love this simple recipe! I have even changed the meat to chicken and added 2 cups of chicken broth to make it more like a soup like my mother use to make and it was DELISH! "
"this was very delicious and easy. i actually had all of the ingredients on hand and threw it in the crockpot for dinner. the house smelled wonderful when i came home from work. thank you for a keeper!!"
