Pork Pozole

"I found this recipe in a magazine a few years back. The flavor is fantastic. The green enchilada sauce, lime juice and cilantro really give this dish alot of flavor. Serve with warm tortillas and your favorite salsa."

  1. Wow, wow, wow! Was this good! Halved the recipe and used pork loin chops. Added some red pepper because my enchilada sauce was mild. Gotta have it spicy. This is going in rotation!
  2. This is some awesome pozole. I made as written with minor exceptions. I only had a 19 oz. can of mild green enchilada sauce so I supplemented the lack of liquid with a full 15 oz. can of chicken broth. Also, I only had a 1.5 lb. pork shoulder roast and the recipe called for 2.5 lbs. The 1.5 lbs. was perfect (it was very lean so no loss there); I really don't think more would be needed as the finished product was very hardy. I stayed true to the seasonings listed and they were perfect; I don't think it could be better. I served the pozole with the following sides: chopped onion, cilantro, red pepper flakes and served with wedges of lime and fresh flour tortillas. This was a wonderful meal for sure. My new son-in-law was treated to this tonight -- totally new to him, and he loved it, that in and of itself is a great tribute to this meal. Oh, and there are leftovers, which I know will be even better tomorrow, and they're all mine! Thanks Sky Hostess for a great pozole recipe.
  3. Very good, as written. I didn't change a thing, but you could add 1-2 minced jalepenos if you wanted an extra kick. :) Thank you for sharing this recipe!
  4. I made this dish exactly as above and it was awesome. I served it with cornbread instead of tortillas-because face it-if you can't get good homeade tortillas you might as well eat cardboard!!


I have always loved to cook. I really love to try new recipes! RecipeZaar is perfect for looking for new recipes. It's the first place I go when looking for something new! My husband and I moved to Northeast Arizona (up in the mountains) in April (2007). We live near Show Low. The summer was absolutely beautiful! It never got to 100 degrees! Coming from Phoenix, we both enjoy being away from the heat and the city. Our first snow this year was absolutely gorgeous! My recipe ratings pretty much follow the star system. I will usually make a recipe as is the first time. I say usually but I do still change things sometimes. I try to be fair if I have made changes. I will rate 5 stars if we LOVE it and it will be a regular dish around our house. 4 stars if we really liked it and 3 stars if it was just OK but we wouldn't make it again. I realize everyone's tastes are different so I do try to be gentle. Cooking can be a very personal thing to someone. Another creative outlet for me is beading. I love to make beaded jewelry.
