Chicken Posole Soup

Posole, or pozole, is a traditional Mexican stew that is made with hominy. Hominy, if you weren’t aware (we weren’t), is dried maize kernels—think corn puffs pre-puff. While we aren’t big corn consumers, everything else about the soup/stew seemed amazing: chicken (or pork), radishes, salsa, chili pepper, and even avocado.

While we took some liberties, including substituting hominy with chopped cauliflower, this soup is out of this world. It was surprisingly filling and delicious, while not requiring a lot of preparation or work. We shredded some remaining chicken from a roasted whole chicken and within a half-hour we had dinner on the table. If you decide to roast a chicken early in the week, you’ll be able to make stock and this soup in easy progression. We hope you’ll give this recipe a try, and let us know in the comments how you like it!
