Pork is the regular meat for posole, yet if you have remaining poultry or beef I claim why not proceed and also make use of that. I assume it would certainly be similarly as scrumptious!

Hominy, among the vital active ingredients in posole, are big maize grains that have actually been treated with lye, which softens their external husk and also provides a splendidly crunchy appearance. You can locate hominy both dried out and also tinned, like beans, yet this fast half an hour posole dish listed below makes use of the tinned variation for ease.

I would definitely enjoy this soup with cornbread on the side, so I can fall apart the cornbread right into the soup and also absorb all that terrific brew! An inside story of prepared rice would certainly likewise be an excellent mattress topper for the soup to complete the dish.
Sauce it Up!
I utilized my homemade red enchilada sauce as a base for this soup, which aided enlarge the brew and also give a lots of instantaneous taste. I maintained the garnishes for my posole basic to maintain prices reduced, yet if you wish to splurge I assume this soup would certainly be outstanding with a little shredded cheddar, pepper jack, sour lotion, or avocado. The creaminess of any one of those garnishes would certainly be a superb comparison to the spicy brew. There’s a great deal of space for personalization with this one, so enjoy with it!
