Pozole Verde

13 Mar

This is a recipe that tugs right at my heartstrings. I love Pozole and this recipe for verde from Karen at The Back Road Journal does this traditional dish proud! Viva Pozole!

Back Road Journal

How about a nice steaming bowl of pozole verde? Haven’t heard of it…what if I said pork and hominy stew with green chilies. This traditional dish is the comfort food of Mexico. There are many varieties of pozole using different meats but the classic is made with pork. Their color comes from the different chilies which are used and will be called white, red or green pozole, which happens to be the colors in  the Mexican flag.

Throughout the state of Guerrero in the southwest part of Mexico bordering the Pacific, every Thursday the locals sit down at pozolerias where all they serve is this dish. I just had to try something that famous. I can tell you that I could definitely eat pozole once a week also, it is that good.

        One thing she did not mention… You have to clean the hominy, remove the seed from each kernel or it will taste bitter.

        Yep! At least that is what I learned from my mother-in-law who is Mexican.
