Green Chile Posole

Green chile posole is a staple in my home, and Posole in general is a staple throughout the Southwest and Mexico. Posole, which means “hominy”, is a traditional soup or stew from Mexico.

It is made from hominy (chewy, puffy kernels of corn), with meat, and can be seasoned and garnished with shredded lettuce, chile peppers, onion, garlic, radishes, avocado, salsa or limes. Posole is typically served on New Year’s Eve to celebrate the new year.

Super simple to make, this is a dish you can throw together in no time flat and is the ultimate comfort food! Not a fan of green enchilada sauce or just have red on hand? No worries, the red and green versions can both be used.
