New Mexico Green Chile Pork Posole

New Mexico Green Chile Pork Posole

Pozole, which means "hominy", is a traditional stew from Mexico, which once had ritual significance. It has a very "earthy" flavor. It is made from hominy, with pork or chicken, and can be seasoned and garnished with shredded cabbage, chile peppers, onion, garlic, radishes, avocado, salsa and/or limes.
