I made pozole...sort of!


Talk of pozole on a recent thread inspired me to whip up a batch, despite having no recipe, or even a good understanding of how to make it.

I had half of a Costco roasted chicken in the fridge, which I threw into a crock pot whole (including all the stuff in the bottom of the plastic packaging). I added a bottle of amber ale to cover, and cooked it until it pretty much fell apart.

When it was cool enough to handle, I removed every bone I could find, then threw in a can of hominy (drained), a can of chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, and a can of mild green chilies.

Note to self; check the heat of those chilies before you dump the whole damned can in!

My efforts produced a simple, tasty dish, but it was a bit too warm! Now...does anyone know how it is supposed to be made?

That's one way to make it.

Not the only way. More info


The first "Pozole" I ever had was years ago, on the mainland (Manzanillo). It must have been "de cabeza", because there was an entire cow's skull in the huge pot. It was good though!

Good point! Would my wood stove count, it is my primary heat source this time of year.

Cooking anything over an open fire makes the food taste better.

I had been wanting to sit by a fire and roast a few smokies for a few months.....and finally hooked up with a buddy just before Xmas who also thought that it was a brilliant idea.

We did out best covid distancing, had a nice fire for a few hours, roasted a few weenies, and got caught up on what was what.

The fire is such a symbolic event....as is anything cooked over it and shared.
