Gringo Posole

Rating: Unrated
My own version of posole! Stew made with hominy, garlic, peppers and pork meat. This is made in the slow cooker. I tried to make the stew as colorful as possible, which is why I use both white and yellow hominy and green and red bell peppers. This recipe is best the next day reheated. I love it best with cornbread or EVEN BETTER, fresh flour tortillas. It is awesome on a cold winter day and is great to take to pot luck dinners. Can be doubled or reduced in size to accommodate any number of people, and is a relatively foolproof recipe!

Slow Cooker, Easy Baked Potato Soup

I love this recipe in my slow cooker, especially since there is minimal prep. No bacon to fry, so the slow cooker is the only dish you will get dirty. If you have dry ranch mix on hand, I have really enjoyed this variation!
