Pozole Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Looking for something to warm you up this winter? This quick and easy Pozole soup recipe will do the trick! Pozole means "hominy" and is a traditional soup or stew in Mexico.

There are so many great cooks in my family, and I do not pretend to be one of them. It's not that I don't like cooking, it's just that my husband loves it so much, I just let him take over. I hope to share some of his best recipes in the future.

For now, I am sharing my friend Diane's recipe for Pozole.  She gave me this recipe years ago, and it continues to be a family favorite. I hope you enjoy!


2 onions chopped

1 T. oil

2 lbs. cubed pork

1 large or 3 cans regular hominy

4 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. salt

1 large carton Chicken broth

1 whole rotisserie chicken deboned

Chili powder to taste (I use approximately 2-3 Tablespoons)


Saute onions, garlic, and pork; add chicken broth, oregano, salt, chicken, and hominy. Sprinkle chil powder to taste. Simmer for 30 minutes or heat thoroughly. That's it!

Garnish with tortilla chips, avocado slices, and grated cheese. We also like to sprinkle cayenne pepper on our soup for a little added spice.  I hope you enjoy!

    HI there! Going to try this today…looks good and easy. Quick question…do you drain hominy first before adding in to pot. I make a taco soup that you dump all cans in without draining. Just want to make sure. thank you!

      Sorry I am just now seeing this message! I don’t know how it slipped by. I have made the pozoli both ways, but I usually drain the hominy. Most of the time, hominy doesn’t have a lot of juice anyway, so it doesn’t matter a whole lot. I hope you enjoyed the soup!
