Pozole was enjoyed by the Aztecs in special feasts
Pozole is a hearty Mexican stew traditionally made with hominy, meat and has either a red, green or white color depending on the ingredients used for the soup base. Other variations also exist using chicken, beef, seafood, beans. It is served alongside shredded lettuce or cabbage, red or white onion, radishes, lime, oregano, salsas and corn tostadas.
Like the angel on one shoulder, pozole can be an innocent winter warm-up to be enjoyed with family as a holiday meal. Or, like the devil on the other shoulder, a known hangover cure urging you to go out and drink all the drinks.
Pozole (pronounced po-so-le) means “hominy” and it is basically a cross between soup and stew. It is a popular and beloved dish throughout Mexico and is commonly enjoyed for events and special occasions, such as weddings, Independence Day, and Christmas. It is described as Mexican comfort food, because it warms you from the inside out.
The main ingredient in Pozole is Hominy, which is made from corn. Due to the belief that humans were made by the corn gods, in Mexican Aztec history corn was considered a sacred plant. Therefore, the Aztecs and other Mesoamerican peoples cooked Pozole only on special occasions.
