I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
My husband does not care for soup. He things it's watery and unfilling, which is a problem because I happen to love soup. It can be warm, creamy and comforting, or crisp, light and refreshing. It's great all year round, which is why I still make it despite the protests of my dear hubby.
So you can imagine my surprise when I told Glenn I was making Posole, hoping he wouldn't know what that actually was, and heard him exclaim, "I love Posole!" Whaaaa...?
Turns out he'd been served Posole quite a bit by some friends he had growing up. And even though it is indeed a soup, it's so chunky and flavorful, he gets full, and happy when he eats it.
Well thank goodness. (Says I, without the slightest tone of sarcasm).
Glenn was right though, this is a killer soup, with fun ingredients I don't normally cook with. Hominy and canned tomatillos make up the majority of the soup, and then it's seasoned perfectly. I was unable to find canned tomatillos, so I just bought fresh ones and roasted them by quartering them and roasting them at 400 until soft and slightly browned. It was great, especially garnished with radishes, avocado and cilantro.
I'm happy to report that not only did my hubs enjoy this for dinner, he also took it to school for lunch. Thank you Posole, you've renewed my faith in soup!
