Posole'


Now I've never been to Mexico, but supposedly people eat Posole' around Christmas. In the Fall, every day is Christmas at our house because we love Posole'. It looks like a lot of ingredients, but you probably already have most of this stuff in your pantry already (ok, maybe not a can of hominy). This is a chunky, flavorful soup that I think you will love.

Posole':
2 cloves minced garlic
1 can hominy
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 bell pepper (red or green), chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup chicken stock
1 bunch of cilantro
Juice from one lime
Salt & Pepper
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 lb. of pork steak -- now we can't always find "pork steak" (not even sure what that is exactly), so we use boneless pork chops and cut them up into bite size pieces

Toppings:
Sour cream
Chopped green onions
Cheddar cheese
Shredded lettuce
Diced Avocado
Sliced radishes
More cilantro
Tortilla chips or Fritos

1. Saute chopped onion, bell pepper, and garlic in oil
2. Add chopped up pork and saute until browned
3. Add tomato sauce, chicken stock, hominy, and seasonings
4. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer
5. Let simmer for about 30 minutes, then add lime juice and cilantro
6. Serve with as many toppings as you like

***This recipe will make about two hearty bowls of posole'. If you are feeding four people, I would double this recipe. We usually double this recipe because we love it so much!!
