Posole de Pollo (Chicken Posole)

Add some spice to your summer with this hot chicken posole. Eat with warm rolled up corn tortillas. Serves 8.

  • 2 tablespoon grapeseed or olive oil
  • 2 sweet onions, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked peppercorns
  • 2  32-ounce chicken broth
  • 3  10-ounce cans diced tomatoes with green chilies. This will make your posole spicy hot. To make it less spicy get 2 cans with the chile and 1 without.
  • 1 pound fresh chicken thighs
  • 1  29-ounce can hominy, drained and rinsed
  • 1 heaping teaspoon dried oregano, and more for serving
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice and lime wedges, for serving
  • 2 ripe avocados, sliced for serving
  • corn tortillas, for serving
  1. In a large saucepan of at least 6 quarts, heat oil to medium and add the onion, garlic and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to brown about 15 minutes.
  2. Add the broth, tomatoes and chicken and bring to a boil. Simmer until chicken is cooked through 12 to 13 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low, remove chicken and let cool for several minutes. Cover your soup.
  4. Shred the chicken.
  5. After your chicken is shredded add back into the soup along with the hominy, oregano and lime juice. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil.

Warm up your corn tortillas on a hot skillet. Serve posole topped with sliced avocado or on the side along with oregano and lime wedges.
