"My own version of posole! Stew made with hominy, garlic, peppers and pork meat. This is made in the slow cooker. I tried to make the stew as colorful as possible, which is why I use both white and yellow hominy and green and red bell peppers. This recipe is best the next day reheated. I love it best with cornbread or EVEN BETTER, fresh flour tortillas. It is awesome on a cold winter day and is great to take to pot luck dinners. Can be doubled or reduced in size to accommodate any number of people, and is a relatively foolproof recipe!" — Lisa D. Courtney

This soup is absolutely delicious. My husband and I (both Mexican American) found it to be excellent. Not too spicy at all (I can't handle spicy!) We made it more authentic by serving sliced cabbage on top and lime juice (sounds gross, I know...just try it, it's soooo yum!) and tostadas with sour cream. This has become a go to dinner that lasts the two of us 2-3 days. Highly recommended!!!!
Maybe a little too spicy for this chilihead but what great flavors and how easy to make. This is a keeper that you can play with to suit your family flavor profile.
I cooked on stove. I used more meat, one bell bc that's all I had & beef broth for the bouillon. I simmered for 30 & topped w green onion & cheese
It was wonderful. I did it on top of the stove instead of in a slow cooker. Garnished it with sour cream and cheddar.
This was really good. I made it exactly as written except I used more meat and 3 bouillon cubes. Served it with cornbread.
Very good. I used both chicken and pork, as well as added the much needed cilantro to make it absolutely perfect! You can't have posole without cilantro, it's just not the same.
We thought this posole tasted great. I sprinkled the pork with black and red pepper before browning. I then sautéed the onion and garlic only and then threw everything (except the red and green peppers) in the slow cooker at the same time and cooked on high for about 4 hours. Since we like a medium level of spiciness I cut the red pepper to a 1/2 tsp. Then during the last hour of cooking I added the red and green bell pepper so they would not get mushy and would retain more color. It was very flavorful and just the right level of spiciness for us. We will definitely be making this again. Thanks Lisa for a great recipe!
THIS DISH IS AWESOME, I COULDNT STOP EATING, VERY VERY TASTY. THANKS
