Ann's Easy Posole

"This is an easy meal to put on the table. I love to make this in the fall and winter. The chile powder from New Mexico makes a lot of difference, but you could make your own chile powder from chile pods, or buy it at the store. NOTE: If you buy chili powder (like McCormick) from the store, it is a blend of ingredients. Omit the oregano if you use it."

  1. I must respectfully disagree with KyJo's post; I thought this was wonderful, and so did my family. I just loaded up on hominy again, so I can make more of it. Thanks Miss Annie, for a winner!
  2. Fabulous Pozole! Mine turned out perfect, however I added quite a bit of extra liquid (just over three cups of chicken broth). I lived in Mexico for a summer and all the pozole I have eaten has been very soupy...anyways I sliced up serrano peppers and added chopped cilantro. Que rico!
  3. This is a quick easy recipe. I chopped 2 tbsp of cilantro and sprinkled it on top of the bowls just before serving. I found that there was not enough moisture and added 2 cups of chicken stock - I know that Pozole should be thick but this was just too thick. Still a very good recipe and I thank you for it Miss Annie
  4. This is a great, easy recipe - and so delicious! I'm the only one in my household that likes it so it's not worth it to use a long and involved recipe. This one I can throw together using a rotisserie chicken and I can eat it for breakfast! I like mine thick so didn't add any extra liquid when I cooked it, but I may add some chicken broth later. I did add chopped roasted poblanos - I always have them in the freezer so it was no extra trouble. And lime juice (from home grown Mexican limes). I'll be making this a lot this winter. Thanks for the recipe!!
  5. Easy is right! I used up some barbequed chicken and pork ribs. I added a fresh jalepeno and a couple of chipotles, plus the New Mexico chile as suggested. I too added a little more liquid. I served it over finely shedded cabbage, with lime wedges on the side. Hubs and I loved it. Thank you.
