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.

Oh My Mollete

I recently got together with my maternal Aunt, we swapped family history and recipe stories. She shared how her grandkids love a good Mollette. Naturally I had to ask, “what the heck is a mollette?.” This hungry girl had to know, ASAP. Here’s a link from Savuer, their take on the coveted Mollete https://pin.it/i4p74bqqob3pha First off, here are some tips… Split your bread, bolillos (found in Mexican bakeries and some grocery store bakery sections) or bun of choice, toast the halves and butter them (after hollowing them out a bit) for added decadence. Use beans as the base layer. Cooked meat can be added as well. You could also add cooked scrambled eggs or seasoned cooked ground round or ground turkey, leftover taco meat or cooked shredded chicken, etc… Garnish with your favorite things/whatever you have on hand. Thee Molleta is your oyster at this point! This morning for my garnishes I used a green salsa I made previously. I used some chopped onions I had in the fridge, a bit of chopped cilantro, a …

Crockpot White Chicken Chile

I know this recipe has to be excellente as written, but today I tweaked a few things. I used ingredients I had on hand. In the process I think my version is a tad lighter in calories. Maybe just a tad tho. πŸ˜‰ Lol Oh well. Here’s the recipe as seen on Pinterest… https://pin.it/vmkjqt5cw7qcnn My way is really good too. Okay, so I only changed… used one can black beans instead of 2 cans white beans. Instead of the cream cheese and half and half I used 1/4 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt. I adjusted the seasonings at the end, added a little garlic powder, a pinch extra dried oregano and a tad more salt. I cooked my soup a total of 3 1/2 hours. Condiments, a must… use store bought salad topping chips, chopped avocado, fresh chopped cilantro and chopped green onions.
