Green Chile Chicken Posole for the Win!

A soup made of green chile, broth, hominy, chicken and some delish mexican spices. I finally tried my hand at this soup. I’m glad I did, it came out very tasty! I hope you’ll give my version a try.

I grew up enjoying the red chile posole my mother made, hers was so good. Over the years I’d heard of others eating the green chile version and I actually tried it myself once long ago, but found it to be a bit bland.

After researching recipes on the web I came came up with this delicious version, enjoy!

Onions translucent, salt added, garlic in and the chicken.

All ingredients added now, bring to a boil, cover and simmer. After 30 minutes add in the can of chopped green chiles.

Meanwhile, gather and chop your condiments and remember to always keep your condiment game strong! These tasty ingredients help take the posole to an over the top yummy status.

Here’s my husband starting to top his bowl of goodness.

I like adding extra spice to mine, chopped roasted dried chile de arbol for moi. This soup pairs well with a light brew or a chilled glass of Chardonnay or water of course.

It’s a very colorful culinary delight!
