This is the second installment on my mission to try different methods of making pozole. It has similar ingredients as the first one I posted (see “Useful Links” below), is less spicy and requires a longer cook time. Here are some things I liked about this one: (1) ease of preparation - just dump everything in the pot (2) a generous ratio of meat and vegetables to liquid, and (3) a thicker broth. The jury is still out on which version is better. For now I am taking a break from Mexican soups!

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs (or pork shoulder), trimmed and cut in bite size pieces
  • 1 20-ounce can red chile sauce (red enchilada sauce works fine)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 30-ounce can Mexican style hominy, undrained
  • Garnishes: chopped cilantro, radishes and onions


  1. In a 4 quart saucepot, stir together chicken, chile sauce, chicken broth, onion, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt, red pepper flakes (optional), black pepper and bay leaf.
  2. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes.
  3. Remove lid and add undrained hominy. Bring again to a boil, reduce heat and simmer UNCOVERED, stirring occasionally 30 to 40 more minutes or until broth reduces and is slightly thicker. (If soup becomes too thick at any point, add a little more water or broth to maintain desired consistency.)
  4. Serve with bowls of garnish choices.
