Posole {Mexican Stew}

Posole {Mexican Stew}

Posole  Mix:  Thoroughly mix the following ingredients.

1 oz. chili powder (of your choice.  I used Chili California because I was looking for something not spicy.)

1/2 cup cornmeal

3/4 cup flour

3 tsp cumin

2 tablespoons salt

6 teaspoons oregano

In the bottom of a large soup pot, add a large splash of olive oil and brown two large chicken breast, cubed.

Add one large chopped onion and three minced garlic cloves.

Add the Posole Mix and stir in to the pot so the meat is fragrant.

Add 28 oz. of chicken broth & a small can of tomato paste.

Add one regular can of pinto beans & one large can of hominy.

Add chopped cilantro and chopped tomatillo to your liking.

Simmer for about 30 minutes & add water to make the dish as soupy as you would like to eat it.  Serve with tortillas, cornbread, or rice.  Our favorite way to eat Posole is layer a piece of cornbread, pour Posole over it, add a layer of shredded cheddar cheese, and top with fermented Peach Salsa.
