This year, I’m having a huge Christmas party at house partially because my abuelita from Mexico is coming to visit us and I haven't seen her in a while. It goes without saying that the menu is very important and I’m quite a people-pleaser when it comes to food, so much so that I've been racking my brain about the menu.
I’ve got the tamales and the ponche all made. I have all the side dishes and desserts figured out and ready to be made. And one dish I know definitely has to be on the table is my ancho chile pozole. Plus, pozole is my grandmother’s favorite; so there is extra pressure for it to be extraordinary. To the traditional pozole recipe I add ancho chile, giving it a thicker consistency and a stronger chili pepper taste.
Try your hand at this pozole recipe! I hope your abuelita or friends and family enjoy this classic soup.
