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 any variation of 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.
