What is Pozole?
Pozole is a soup originating in Central Mexico, most commonly Red (rojo), Green (verde) and white (blanco). The soup usually features pork, and often tripe and offal and is commonly prepared for a special occasion or at weekends. It's a rich, slowly cooked stew type soup that is packed with flavour, colour and texture. One magical ingredients that all pozole have in common is hominy, corn kernels, soaked in pickling lime until they swell to more than double the size. The skins are removed and we're left with a soft, tender ball of corn.
Pozole blanco is the lesser known of the pozole soup family and is said to have originated in Guerrero, It's a simple soup but surprisingly flavoursome. Don't let the monotone appearance trick you!
