Chicken Pozole Soup

01.23.2019

Chicken Pozole – This is one of my all time favorite soup recipes! It’s a simple, flavorful Mexican soup that’s loaded with fresh ingredients. It’s also hearty, healthy and incredibly easy to make. Try it once and you’ll be hooked!

What is Pozole (or Posole)?

Pozole is a traditional Mexican stew that’s made with hominy and meat (either pork or chicken) and its commonly garnished with cabbage, chile peppers, radishes, avocado, cilantro or limes.

Pozole (posole) is a Spanish word, pronounced Po-ZO-leh.

This soup isn’t your traditional Pozole Rojo, that is much different. That is made with pork and is cooked in a dried chile pepper based broth and it is more of a stew. This version is actually very similar to chicken tortilla soup but with added cabbage and hominy (and it’s brothier than the rojo).

You can adjust the spices of this soup to suit your taste. If you like a strong chile powder flavor you can double or even triple the amount. If you want it spicy add lots of jalapeños, that’s my favorite way but my kids don’t care for it.

I’ve even used to make this soup with fresh tomatoes. If doing so just add 4 – 5 roma tomatoes (diced) in place of the canned.

This might not be the first thing you’d think to make but I’m telling you everyone I’ve served this soup to loves it! It’s one of the most satisfying soups and it’s perfect for chilly days, or even summer days to use up fresh veggies. Read more »
