Pozole or Pozolli –original name in Náhuatl– is a traditional dish from Mexico consumed by the Aztec ancestors on special sacred occasions and celebrations. Nowadays this soup is culinary staple of the states of Sinaloa, Jalisco, Morelos, Michoacán and DF. Each state has different interpretation though all recipes have one original ingredient in common: dried maize or “maíz” known in the United States as hominy.
My recipe today is inspired in the original but using chicken instead of pork and adding chipotle to the chile sauce. This soup is hearty and great for cold weather; it will warm your heart and your soul.
I invite you to enjoy this traditional Mexican dish and serve to your family and friends.
