Pozole is a very traditional Mexican dish. It’s a reddish pork broth seasoned with dried ancho chilies and garlic. It’s typically served on special occasions such as birthdays, baptisms, first communions, and during the holiday season. In Mexico, pozole is prepared using black corn and can be an arduous process. To save on time in the kitchen, you can use canned pozole corn like I use in this recipe. Prepare pozole during this holiday season and see why it’s so popular! MORE + LESS -

  • 1
    Cut the pork into 2-3 inch chunks. Place the meat in a large pot; add the water and a teaspoon of salt. Boil at high heat and let cook for 30 minutes, removing the foam that forms at the surface. Lower the heat and let cook until the meat is tender (around 90 minutes to 2 hours).

    While the meat is boiling, pout 1-2 cups of the broth onto the dry peppers in a large container. Let soak until the peppers are completely rehydrated. Remove the stems and seeds. Blend the peppers and broth in a blender with the garlic cloves until completely blended.

    Strain the pepper puree into the pot with the meat. Carefully add the pozole corn. Season with more salt if necessary. Let cook for another 30 minutes. Remove from the stove and let sit for about 15-20 minutes before serving.
