This is the easiest recipe I've found for making Pozole. Your kitchen never smelled so good! Excellent on cool or cold day. We garnish it with cilantro and sliced radishes and serve with a side of Mexican rice and tortillas.

Basically very good however I also felt that there was something missing. I added 2 very finely chopped chipotles and feel that the taste improved. Comparing it to a cookbook of very traditional Mexican recipes I noticed that it is more authentic to use dried ancho and guajillo chiles all pork (pig head or hooves to be exact) and no cumin....but really there are as many ways to make a good pozole as there are cooks in Mexico! To avoid kind of tough chile skins in you soup strain the blended chile & chicken broth into the soup pot. Thanks for the recipe! It is traditional to have Pozole on New Year's Day so enjoy this great soup and..Feliz Ano Nuevo to you all! Read More

Very good basic recipe. Pozole is eaten with shredded cabage diced onions lime sliced radishes and sometimes cilantro or oregano sprinkled on top and tortillas rolled up in the palm of your hand to dip in your soup. Read More

Cheryl B stole my thunder..... I signed up just to leave a comment about how lame everyone is that changes the recipe and then rate it badly ("I couldn't find hominy at my local store" or "I've never heard of chicken in pozole before"......really?!). There are many different pozole recipes and the taste varies greatly. I was looking not for a "traditional" recipe but for one that did not require a 2 part cooking process and could cook unattended. To that end I found a very good base recipe. Will I make changes? Absolutely but only because of my personal taste and will not penalize the author of this recipe with a bad rating. For everyone that finds that this recipe is "missing something" that they "can't figure out".....it's probably the marrow flavor that you're missing because this is a boneless recipe. Read More

Very good! There was something missing in the recipe that I just couldn't figure out but we really enjoyed this dish. We added some roasted jalapenos and anaheim chilies into the blender to give it a little more spice. We used chicken breast only white hominy only and reduced salt broths (salt to taste at the dinner table). Poured the pozole over mexican rice in a bowl and ate with corn tortillas - YUM! Not greasy at all. Will definitely make again with a few more tweaks. Couldn t give this 5 stars since we altered the ingredients. Read More

This recipe was great after I added and deleted some ingredients. It is so easy since it is done in a crockpot. Instead of the chile negro I used a small can of chili colorado sauce. Instead of chicken I used all pork (1 1/2 lbs. boneless country ribs). I only used ONE tablespoon of cumin and didn't add the green chili's. I also added more hominy. Read More

I liked this pozole. Although I do prefer red chiles. Someone said this was like a soup. That would be because it IS a soup. Read More

I made this new years day and it was soooo good! I used all chicken and i couldn't get the chili's in time so i used about 14oz can of red enchilada sauce. everything else i pretty much followed the recipe except i used hot diced chilis and it was so spicy i had to add more broth (because we had kids eating too). We served with diced avocado cheese crushed corn chips and sour creme on top to cut the heat. we also had all the fixings suggested. everyone loved it even the kids!! and this recipe went a long way. Im making this over and over again! update made again with all pork tenderloin. used a can of chile colorado sauce instead of grinding chilis added more garlic fresh & ground cumin & mexican oregano. Again a huge hit w/ the crowd! made enough for a med/lrg bowl for 12 people. excellent! Read More
