This week has been all about the rain and no sun, and with all this windy and cold rain, there is nothing like having a warm bowl of soup in your lap to comfort the chilly weather. Pozole is a traditional mexican hominy soup that is very popular in weddings or quinceañeras, because of how quick and satisfying it is to make, yet very delectable. There are a few ways i make this soup, but considering the gray weather, i was feeling a bit lazy so this is my easy way of making Pozole (instead of roasting the chilies and making my own sauce), what can i say?? This is a very convenient recipe you can whip up if you’re in a hurry to get back under the covers and watch movies with a delicious bowl to warm you all day. :P

Pozole:
1 bay leaf
1 onion, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 tsp of oregano
¼ paprika
2 15oz cans of hominy
1 15oz can of enchilada sauce
1 15oz can of pinto beans
½ tsp salt, or to taste

Toppings:
Half of a cabbage, finely shredded
2 tomatoes, diced
1 avocado, chunks
½ cup of chopped cilantro

In a large pot, stir-fry the bay leaf, oregano, onions and tomatoes until golden.  Add half of the enchilada can sauce and paprika cooking down till to a thick red sauce.  Add the can of beans and 1 can of the hominy to the sauce. In a blender add the remaining can of hominy and fill up with water to blend smoothly. Add to the pozole soup and cook till beans are soft. If you have a spicy palate you can add the remaining can, otherwise taste to make sure your mouth doesn’t go on fuego! Add salt. Serve in a bowl and add the cabbage first, followed by the tomatoes, avocado and cilantro.

Tip: You can also add radishes, squeeze lemon wedges, add crema and queso fresco/cotija!

      Señor Calderon, si Ud ve el botón en la parte de arriba de la pagina, a la mano izquierda hay opciones para cambiar el idioma de ingles a “Spanish” (español) por medio de Google Translate.
