Slow-Cooker Posole


"Traditional Mexican Posole is served with shredded cabbage, lime wedges, avocado, onion, cilantro, and, of course, warm tortillas. Many Mexican markets have posole meat already chopped up for you. You can add another can of hominy if your slow-cooker is large. I prefer hot enchilada sauce with salsa, but the regular kind will do."

To sum things up, I'm a white girl and my husband is Mexican. He's used to his mom's pozole, so I was nervous about making this. To my surprise, he loved it! Even called is family to say how goo...

This is excellent. I made it with homemade chicken stock instead of water. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I recommend using mild or medium spicy enchilada sauce. I used spicy hot and it was ...

Quick and easy. I used a powdered enchilada mix that adds tomato paste and water. It doesn't seem as spicy to me and easier on the kids. I don't recommend adding the extra water. Mine was too w...
