Green Chile Pork Posole

Good morning friends!

Sorry, it’s been too long since I posted a recipe, but I’ve been getting back into the school routine!  Lately,  I’ve been reaching for my tried and true friend, the crock pot.  So many times in the last month it’s been a real dinner saver! Last nights Green Chile Pork Posole was so yummy and quick and what a wonderful greeting to come home to after a late afternoon soccer game.  What is a “posole” you ask?  It’s simply a Mexican-style soup, traditionally made with pork and hominy.   It does have a little “kick” to it…but the condiments I used to top it can mellow it out a bit.  Give this one a try, I think you’ll really like it.

Green Chile Pork Posole

Ingredients

1 15 ou can of hominy (corn that has had the hull and germ removed, found in canned veggie aisle)

1 16 ou jar of salsa verde

2-3 cups of chicken broth

2 4 ou cans of diced green chilies

1 cup chopped onion

1 TBL cumin

4 cloves of minced garlic

1 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp red pepper

1-2 pounds of pork tenderloin, diced into bite size pieces

Toppings

chopped avocado, low-fat cheese, fat-free plain greek yogurt, crumbled tortilla chips

Instructions

1. Add all ingredients, except the toppings, to your crock pot and stir. Cook on low all day. (6-8 hours)

2. That’s it! It’s really that simple :)

3. Serve with the yummy toppings. Try the plain, fat-free greek yogurt in place of sour cream. It’s tastes the same and is better for you!

Enjoy your dinner :)

  1. I just got this going in the crock pot and can’t wait until dinner! This is the third time I’ve made this posole, and the last two times I’ve added 1/2 can of rinsed black beans. We LOVE the flavor the salsa verde gives and enjoy using pork for this soup.

  2. I just left a comment on Peggy’s Green Chile Salsa & Pork Stew on lespetitesgourmettes.com that recommended your delicious posole as a similar dish. You would probably enjoy their stew that uses Hatch Valley Salsa from TJ’s. I know that anyone who tries your posole will LOVE it like we do.
