Red Chicken Pozole

Red Chicken Pozole is another one that came to me from a request by a weekly meal client. I hadn’t made it before. To be perfectly honest, I had never even eaten it before attempting to make it. Now that I’ve experienced it, I love it and seek it out at restaurants. This recipe may not be the same as your great great great grandmother’s born and raised in Jalisco, Mexico. However, I think it’s pretty darn delicious. Plus, my client said that he had his Mexican friend over, gave her a bowl, and she said it was “LEGIT”. So it must be comparable to a good authentic bowl, right?

What makes this pozole a pozole is the hominy. The red chile sauce is what makes it a red pozole and the garnishes are a must. Cabbage or lettuce, radish, lime, cilantro, avocado, jalapeno and just because you can, cheese! Cotija is my choice for this one. I used chicken for my client, but pork is more traditional. You could swap out the chicken for cubed pork shoulder and it would be great. In Mexico, they prepare pozole for special occasions, but I say whip up a batch any time. Instead of the cumin, chili powder, and oregano, you can use J.Fae House Seasoning if you have a jar of that or want to whip up a batch. Try it out and let me know your thoughts!
