This authentic Mexican pozole can be ladled into bowls with the powdered oregano, chili powder, and chopped white onions spread out on the table family-style. Add the spices and onions right before eating. Hominy are corn kernels without the bran or hull that has been soaked. The kernels should be available in the U.S. at most grocery stores or at a Mexican grocers.  Squeezing in lime adds brightness to this soup and can tone down the spiciness of the chili powder(if adding). Serve with tortilla chips or tostadas (recipe for tostadas posted later).

Ingredients:

1 pound pork shoulder

3 cups white hominy, canned or packaged, rinsed

½ medium yellow or white onion, diced

5 cloves garlic

1/4 teaspoon cumin

3 tablespoons dried oregano

4 dried ancho chiles, toasted and ground into a coarse powder or 4 tablespoons chili powder

2 bay leaves

2 limes, cut into fours

 

Directions:

Cover pork shoulder with water, add whole cloves of garlic, bay leaves, and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover, allowing to simmer for 40 minutes or until cooked through.

Remove the pork from the water and allow it to cool.   Reserve the cooking liquid.  When cool enough to handle shred the meat.

Remove the garlic cloves and bay leaves from the broth, add the hominy and shredded pork to the broth, adding water if necessary to cover the ingredients, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until cooked through.

Serve the pozole with bowls of the ancho chili powder/ chili powder on the side, bowls of diced onions, bowls of dried or powdered oregano, and lime wedges

Family or friends can top the bowls with chili, oregano, and onions as they wish, and add a squeeze of lime to the soup.

 

Additional Serving Suggestions:

Cilantro can be added to this soup, as shown in the photo, if desired.
