I made this last night and it turned out fabulous. I ended up doubling the recipe because of the size pork roast I had. I followed the recipe exactly with only one exception. Toward the end of cooking I added one large can of green enchilada sauce medium heat. I divided the batch and took half to my Mom and Stepfather along with some cornbread and they loved it! Thanks for the great recipe. I will be making this again!! Read More

I am mainly writing this review so that some beginner such as myself doesn't make the same mistake I did...the recipe calls for ONE Chipotle not ONE CAN!!! OMG my mouth is on fire. Will definitely try this again though. Read More

This is a favorite now! I cooked it over the stove & for the meat I used the pork chops & chicken breast I had. I chopped up 2 porkchops(bone & all) & a whole chicken breast & a half YUM..YUM! I cooked it down until it reached a think gravey. It is slighty spicy but oh so good! We had mexican rice & refied black beans as a side. YUM YUM! Read More

This is wonderful. It tastes so much like some of the food I had while in San Antonio TX. We've had it once as the soup-like serving. I am making a double batch to have some as sandwiches and some in enchiladas with the green sauce. The first time I added the cumin but this time I am leaving it out. I have also left out the green chilies as I do not personally care for them. Thanks for posting! Read More

I say delicious my counter-part rates it good but not great. I took another reviewer's advice and added a half a can green enchilada sauce and I increased most items by 1/4 (because I had a larger cut of pork roast). Also served it with corn bread which was awesome. Read More

I made a less spicy version of this with hominy black beans pork canned tomatoes and chilis. It was a nice flavorful soup but it needs lots of toppings (tortilla strips lime jicama cilantro). Read More

This was my first time making or even tasting Posole. I did everything by the book. It was nice and spicy and resembled Menudo. It was very easy to make. The taste was slightly bland but not too bad. Thanks Read More
