Chicken Red Pozole

Chicken Red Pozole recipe

This lighter version of pozole, a traditional hominy stew, is still vibrant with flavor thanks to two different types of dried chiles and homemade chicken stock. Canola oil’s mild taste lets those flavors shine bright and helps keep saturated fat to a minimum. Don’t skimp on the garnishes – they’re crucial to the final dish!
