Quick Pork Pozole

I LOVE Pozole. It warms my tummy and my soul. The rich and complex taste really does enchant me. I am not hispanic, I am as white as they come. A European mutt if you will, however, I live close to the Mexican border in Sunny San Diego where I am blessed with amazing Mexican food on a daily basis. Pozole is something I could eat everyday…can we say HOMINY?! I live for it! So I thought I would try to make it myself. Being quite the impatient person, I wanted to make a quicker version but still pack it with the traditional glorious flavors. For the pork, I use a “pork butt” also called a  “pork shoulder” It is an inexpensive cut of meat that is also delicious and goes a long way. I cook my pork in the crock pot, shred the meat and then portion it out for different meals!! HOLLA!!!

This Pozole is aromatic and satisfying. Packed with slow cooked flavor but easy and quick enough for a craving at home…ahem.

ENJOY!
