Every once in a while we try something new. I treated myself to some new dishes and Jack tried a new recipe. I don't have the exact one because we sort of combined a couple. Pozole Rojo can be found here and here and here. The last one is the recipe we used. It was quite complicated but that may have been in the way it was written and our expectation of what it would be when we were done. The finished product was a rich and hearty stew/soup which we garnished with lettuce, radishes, avocado, lime, and fresh cilantro. We used chicken instead of pork. As with many recipes like this, it was even better the next day.
And so Jack started.
We found the guajillo chile peppers on Amazon. We have a lifetime supply of them! If you are on our Christmas list, think Mexican peppers!
The aroma of the peppers in a hot pan was mouth-watering. The poblanos were charred on the grill.
And the blending began. The soup is made in one step and the posole another.
We found hominy at the grocery store. Canned tomatoes were used as beef steak tomatoes are not around this time of the year.
That's all that was left in my bowl. The table looked nice too.
Definitely will make this again.
Have a wonderful weekend.
