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.


  • 2 (15 1/2) ounce cans hominy, rinsed and drained

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 12 ounces pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • Snipped fresh cilantro
  • 6 flour tortillas, warmed


  1. In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine hominy, salsa, broth, chiles, onion, cumin, garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper. Stir in meat.
