Posole Rojo

"This is my favorite Pozole. My kids love it and ask me to make it all the time. I learned to make it from my kids grandmother when we were visiting in Mexico. For the enchilada sauce try using my recipe. Enjoy!"

  1. Thanks for a great and easy Pozole recipe. I love it. Family loves it. I've made it several times over with pork or chicken. Tastes great either way.
  2. Thank you for this amazing recipe!! The soup was wonderful, my entire family enjoyed it. I used your enchilada sauce recipe for the sauce and I'm never going back to store bought! Thank you for taking the time to share these recipes, your spanish rice recipe is a staple in our home as well : ).


  1. I added extra cumin. 1 tsp instead of just 1/4 tsp. I love cumin though. It might be a bit strong for some. Some people don't like the smell. :D


I am a stay at home mom/wife. I have three little girls and two of them are very picky eaters. My oldest daughter will try anything and usually ends up liking it. My husband can be picky but sticks it out when I try something new. <br> <br>I cook a lot and all our major family functions are always at our home. Nobody else in the family can cook! <br> <br>I enjoy camping, going on vacation, cooking, being involved in my children's activities, but most of all quiet time which happens on rare occasion.
