Easy Chicken Pozole for New Years
Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper but all opinions are my own.
New Years Eve is coming up and if you’re still in the mood for some holiday meals, I have the perfect pozole recipe to wake up to on New Years Day! I love me a delicious bowl of pozole. Traditionally, we always eat menudo for Christmas. My mom makes the best menudo and I only eat her recipe. The process is tedious and every year I help her make it. If you follow me on social media you would’ve seen how much I enjoy helping my mami make menudo.
While we all enjoy eating menudo, pozole is another soup that we eat. My tia makes the pozole in our familia and every year I always say I want to make my own pot of menudo. Well, the year has come, my dear friends. I made the easiest version on chicken pozole. Perfect for the rainy weather we’re expecting for the new year. And before I forget, pozole is also considered the perfect hangover meal. Just saying….
Easy Chicken Pozole
- 2 lbs Chicken breasts, boneless skinless
- 2 tsp Garlic
- 3 cubes of Knorr Chicken bullion
- 1 Cabbage, chopped
- limes, cut into quarters
- 1 cilantro bunch, finely chopped
- 3 tsp Chili powder
- 2 tsp Cumin, powder
- 1 tsp coarse salt,
- 1/2 cup onions
- 2 (25oz) cans Hominy, white
- 1 tbsp Oregano, dried
- 1 bunch of Radishes
- 12 oz of your favorite red enchilada sauce
- 4 cups of water
Clean and prep your chicken breast and put it your pot. Add the chili powder, cumin, salt, onions, oregano, garlic bullion cubes, water and enchilada sauce. Simmer for about 20 minutes. Now, you can remove the chicken from the pot and shred on a plate or cutting board and then add it back to the pot or you can just shred the chicken in the pot itself. I like not-so-big chunks of chicken and not completely shredded chicken; in the end, it’s all up to you. Finally, add your hominy and continue to cook for an additional 10 mins.
Serve the pozole in soup bowls and top with it off with cabbage, cilantro, radishes and limes.
I did all my one-stop shopping at my local Northgate Market ( look for your local Northgate Market here!) where I was able to get everything I need, plus more.
And what pairs well with this pozole? Ummm, tortillas!!! Get FREE Guerrero Riquísimas Flour Tortillas (10ct) when you buy any ONE Knorr Bouillon (35.3oz). See, you gotta love shopping at Northgate! Another thing I love about making pozole is that I can customize it with whatever veggies I have in my kitchen. You can even make the dish with pork. Check out this recipe for pozole rojo made with pork.
However you spend the holiday, spend it with food, love and laughter.
Happy New Year!!!
