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 it!

    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!

    This sounds so good.
    I use a similar recipe but mine includes:
    1.)A small can of diced green chilies.
    2.)And a can of chipotle’s in adobo sauce.
    This makes the broth so rich and adds warmth but not really heat!
    I’m stealing your idea to use both pork and chicken! I usually just use chicken. What cut of pork do you recommend?
