Yum! Both my hubs and I really enjoyed this. Being HUGE fans of all Mexican food, I did not doubt for a second that this would receive a thumbs up in our house. My hubs said this was by far the best meal I've ever prepared and even commented that it tops his all-time favorite - chicken & dumplings! :) The only downside is that this takes a considerable amount of time and effort to prepare. I felt like I spent more time chopping, dicing and roasting than I did actually cooking the posole lol. If it weren't for me working from home these days, this would have to be a special weekend meal. I usually make slight changes to new recipes, but didn't this time. THIS IS PERFECT AS IS. DON'T CHANGE A SINGLE THING!!! The poblanos are perfect in this. They are earthy and once roasted, impart a WONDERFUL somkiness. The bacon also adds another level of smoky flavor and the hominy adds texture. On this note, I advise that you splurge for Mexican oregano and NM chile powder. Both have unique flavor profiles that complement this particular posole nicely (FYI, Mexican oregano has a stronger flavor, perfect for holding up to the boldness of Southwest cooking). Topped with shredded cabbage, sliced radish, cubed avocado and a squeeze of lime (a must!), this was a delicious meal. Warm corn tortillas were the perfect accompainment. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, Ken! :-)
