After a brief week of warmer weather, winter returned and so did the desire for comfort food.  Upon the request of a visiting friend, I made this New Mexico pork and green chile posole.  This posole, like most posole dishes, is hearty, spicy and warms you through and through.  It’s made with pork shoulder and roasted green chile, and served with warm corn tortillas.  The only problem with this posole is making sure you have enough, because everyone is going to want seconds!

Posole is a traditional New Mexico dish during the holidays and one of our traditional dishes for Christmas Eve.  Our Christmas Eve version is usually made with pork and red chile.  But when we woke up to snow and cold last weekend, I had an early craving for posole and threw together this Green Chile Chicken Posole.  It’s a very easy dish to make and nothing better for taking the chill off and clearing up that stuffy nose.  One might say it’s New Mexico’s version of chicken noodle soup.

Accepting the end of summer is very hard for me, but last week when the night time temperatures dropped into the 40s, I had to relent. Visions of soup started popping into my head and pictures of posole started popping up on the internet.  With every picture my craving for posole increased and finally increased to the point where I succumbed to the craving.  I knew I had some posole in the freezer, so using other ingredients on hand, I threw together this soup which we’ll call a Mexican-Italian fusion of posole, Italian sausage and kale.  I wasn’t quite sure if it was going to work, but it did.  The depth of flavor in this posole keeps going and going and going, and the richness of the soup stock … well, just look at it.  I could drink the stock and make a meal out it.

Chorizo, Mushroom and Posole (Hominy) Soup

Posole with chorizo is a hearty soup with chorizo, hominy (posole), mushrooms and Swiss chard. mjskitchen.com

During December and January the Costco in my area usually sells 5 pound bags of fresh posole – corn soaking in slaked lime water.  Every year, I buy a bag, make a couple of posole dishes, then divide the rest into freezer bags and freeze.  One of this year’s dishes was this hearty bowl of Posole with chorizo made with Mexican chorizo, posole (hominy), mushrooms and Swiss chard. It’s a bit lighter than the traditional posole stew made in New Mexico which is mostly posole, pork and red or green chile.  With this soup, the posole is just one of several vegetables and the chorizo is used more to add flavor than to add bulk.
