This is one of the most famous dishes in Mexico, the pozole. The word pozole comes from the Nahuatl pozolli = sparkling. Although there are many types of pozole, this is one of the most famous and popular in Mexico.
The pozole is a soup that is served as main course and whenever there are big gatherings, festivities or national holidays – pozole is always eaten.
The best way of describing the pozole is as a “soup-salad". That’s exactly what the pozole is a salad since it has many fresh ingredients, which are added into a maize soup with pork.
About the Recipe
For this recipe many ingredients are needed. Don’t get frighten about seeing many ingredients, by following all the steps correctly the pozole will come out perfect.
In this pozole you can use any pork pieces that you want. We recommend using pork pieces that have bone so the broth has more flavor.
To make the pozole white hominy is used, that comes from the cacahuazintle corn. By no means use another type of corn nor golden corn – it won’t give a good flavor to the pozole, in fact your pozole will taste horrible.
