New Mexico Posole Verde

Posole Verde

Sometimes my wife and I just eat dinner, other times, like tonight, we dine. We made Posole Verde tonight. If you don't know what Posole is (also spelled Pozole), it is a pork and hominy soup. It is more commonly made with red chile but I think I prefer the green. We used New Mexico green Chile. This is perfect winter food.

In New Mexico, and in much of the American Southwest it is spelled Posole with an "S". The Mexican version, is spelled Pozole with a "Z'. It is essentially the same soup but New Mexicans are adamant about using New Mexico chile, red or green, and the Mexican version of Pozole may have Tomatillos in it. Still, it is the same soup.
