My easy version of Posole



This is my version of Posole. Maybe you’ve tried authentic Mexican posole before… Well, this isn’t! I always try to make my version of the recipes I love and that is what I did once again here. Why? Well, the first reason is my kids have a hard time with chile in soups (as it continues to release spicy flavor and it can be too much for them.) In this version of Posole, I am training their taste buds by  making it without the chile but adding pepper flakes when serving. Second reason is I can’t eat pork, so I make it with chicken and give it an extra punch of flavor from other herbs and seasoning (not needed when making it with pork, as pork releases a lot of flavor by itself.) Last, I love to experiment with flavors and luckily for my family it all turns out delicious!

Here is my [easy] version of Posole in 4 steps:

1. Start by placing 2 cups of posole corn in 6 cups of water with salt to boil for 1 hour and a half. Add the chicken breast to the boiling water. (1 chicken breast is enough for 3 people.)

2. Add 1 TBSP salt, TBSP pepper, 1 TBSP cumin, 1 TBSP paprika, 1 cup of chicken stock, 1 TBSP oregano, 1 TBSP tarragon, 1 TBSP parsley and 1 clove of garlic (optional.)

3. Add 1/2 white or yellow onion cut in chunks, carrots and sweet peppers.

4. Let it boil until the posole corn is tender.




Serve adding red pepper flakes and cabbage on top.


Enjoy! 🙂
