"I've learned this recipe from a friend from Mexico. I don't eat menudo, because the tripe or pig's feet made me nauseous. She always celebrated with this soup and I can eat everything in it without being grossed out! It's very delicious and everyone always get seconds or thirds! Don't forget to garnish! I add lots of lemon juice to my bowl and a dash of salt."

""It tastes like in Mexico!" my kids said. Jalapeños alone gave enough heat for our taste. I recommend using lime, not lemon, if you can. Freshly squeezed lime juice makes a difference. In Mexico it was always served with lime. We used napa cabbage for garnishing. Definitely a keeper. It's exactly what we've been looking for. Delicioso.Thanks for sharing!"
"WE LOVE, and my honey actually likes his veggies (garnishes). subbed precooked pork, added the cumin and oregano with other spices. subbed 1 cup chopped jalapenos for the canned chilis. suated them wiht the onion and garlic. prefer the juanita's brand hominy. better flavor, texture, and less additives. used only 1/2 tbsp salt. for work lunches, chop garnishs sprinkle with lemon juice. when time to eat heat soup and dump veggies on top. use atleast a whole bunch of cilantro."
"This has been my "go to" recipe for authentic flavor and preparation! My husband is Mexican and I am always trying to recreate dishes her grew up with. One ingredient I always add to this is a can of green enchilada sauce. It adds a depth of flavor we love! I have made both rojo and verde style pozole but the verde is our favorite. Great recipe here!!!"
"My whole family loves this. It is a little warm for some but we modify it a little. I use pigs feet in cheese cloth for the flavor and none of the feet meet."
"I made this the other day and it was really really good. I will be making it on a regular basis. I had some left over and froze it in single portions and it was just as delicious heated up. Love it!!"
"Never had this before much less made it so no way to compare ... but it sure is yummy! Takes a bit of time but worth the effort. Husband came through house a few times as being prepared commenting how good it smelled. Pressure cooked the pork so it would easily shred (texture preference) and have plenty of stock. Added the blended and strained ancho to the soup. Taste was great and I like the color it added. Toppings a little less than traditional. Flash fried corn tortillas, green onion, cilantro, fresh jalapeño, cheese, sour cream ... Think I might need to have more for breakfast!"
"Wonderful recipe! I lived in Mexico for a while, (some time ago!), and this recipe reminds me of the authentic Pozole I had down there! Thank you so much for sharing! This was an excellent recipe! :-)"
"Good recipe -- it tastes much like the real thing. But this is under-spiced and will need some customization to make it really sing. LOVED the boiled achiote option."
"My first time making Pozole, and it came out awesome. I actually put entire chile ancho mix right in pot and garnished with fresh pico de gallo as well as the cabbage. This recipe is a keeper."
"This recipe is awesome...there is no place around me to get pozole. I like to throw a lil beer into the meat during the initial simmer. Total guy thing i know...but its wonderful."
"I tried pozole in a mexican restaurant a few months ago and loved it. So I tried this recipe and I think this is so much better than the restaurant's. It is wonderful and spicy and I loved the jalepenos in it. Great recipe!"
"This is my husband's (who is from Mexico) FAVORITE recipe! Thank you!!! MUY DELICIOSO!!!!"
"Soooooooooo yummy! My husband and I both love this recipe. I've made it in the crockpot with pork loin or boneless chops, which makes it really easy. Just toss all of the ingredients together in the slow cooker and cook all day...Delicioso!"
"This was pretty good. We had never had Pozole before. The lemon juice really does add something to the soup!"
"amazing, the best posole i have made or had, thank you and you were so right when u said it was spicy !!! I LOVED IT"
"Very tasty. The flavor is great and easy to put together. The only thing is that it was a bit spicy for me but my family loves it."
"Picky DH gave it high praise and cleaned his bowl and mine! Had leftover pork loin roast from Sunday dinner and 1 can hominy. Used recipe in slightly different proportions, for 2 people, lacked last 2 ingredients. One large bowl each with fresh flour tortillas. Will definitely make again."
"Lovely flavor! This keeps my husband around, or at least home in time for dinner. LOL I use pork chops instead of the shoulder and still comes out wonderful. A must have is cabbage, radish, lime, and cilantro for garnishment. Try it you'll love it!"
"Great recipe! I have made this a bunch of times for get-togethers, and it always goes! I have also substituted chicken for the pork, and it turns out just as fantastic! Thanks for posting this!"
