My pot of posole

on May 24, 2010

Ok so you make it in a slow cooker so it isnt really a pot but…YUM I could eat bowls of this stuff for weeks. I got a new slow cooker for my birthday since I murdered my old one  ( on accident). I ❤ My friend Kim.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1-2 lbs boneless pork shoulder ( I used already cut up pork stew meat)
1Tbs cooking oil
1 medium red or green sweet pepper cut into1/2 in pieces
1 medium tomato chopped ( I am lazy i used 1 can of diced tomatos)
1/2 cup of chopped onion
4 cloves of garlic minced
2 14.5 oz cans of golden Hominy drained
1 4oz can of diced green chilies
1 tablespoon of chili powder
1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano crushed
2 14 oz cans of chicken broth ( I used one whole box which is 32oz but eh it wasnt to much more)
Tortilla chips, mexican cheese (the big round white thing not the kraft cheese blend), Lime wedges and chopped cilantro are optional but I highly recommend them. YUM.

1. trim the fat from the meat and cut the meat in to 1 in ch cubes. In a e skillet brown the pork half at a time drain off the fat.
2. transfer the pork to your  slow cooker. Add sweet pepper, onion, tomato, garlic, hominy, chile peppers, chili powder and oregano and then pour the broth over all of that.
3. cover; cook on low setting for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

when it is done put some in a bowl squeeze some lime juice on add some cheese and a sprinkle of cilantro and mmmmmmmm you will be in heaven.

Blessings

      OMG. This soup is really good. I didn’t think my picky husband would like it but he loved it. We completely emptied the soup which has never happened with any soup in this house. I’m even making it again a second week in a row.
