A Crowd Pleasa!

Posole is Spanish for Yummy. It is, I Googled it.

So. Whilst in Idaho over le holidays my Aunt Judy served this up one cold snowy eve. It was crowd pleaser amongst my family--My family being my mother, grandmother, aunt and myself. But lemme tell ya, we were pa-leased.

So at my recent potluck,(which by the way was AMAZING. If you missed it, no worries, there will be more. Every month in fact.) I made this Posole business for the masses.

It is the easiest GD recipe this side of the Mississippi. People raved. Some actually asked me for the recipe, as if they were gonna make it THEMSELVES! Imagine. My roommates wanted me to make it again this weekend. So I did. I shall now share it with you. My "homies."

Posole:
Olive Oil

Chicken(2 cups diced)
Pork(chops or loin, again 2 cups diced)
2 cans of Hominy(which is just hulled corn with the bran and germ removed, duh)
2 small cans of Diced Green Chilies
Chicken Bouillon Cubes(4 or 5)
1-2 cups Water
Garlic Salt
Smoked Paprika(Smoked is faaaar superior to the un-smoked)
S&P

Toppings:
Green Onion
Radishes
Avocado
Sour Cream
CRUSHED chips.
(Smack em' with a hamma!)

Part of me just wants you to figure out what you do next yourself. It's THAT easy. Just guess. NO? Too hard? Too soon? No enough practice?

Oh,Ooooooooook.

Chop meat. Saute meat--in Olive Oil. Add everything else--including the liquid in the Hominy and Chili cans. Stop at toppings. Don't add the toppings IN the soup silly. That's later. Let the soup simma until the bouillon cubes are dissolved and the meat is cooked all nice and prettylike.

Put in a bowl and NOW add the toppings. I know the simpleness is blowing your mind. I would eat some now, but Brian finished it all off. Thanks, Brian. No really, thanks a lot.

Below are some pictures to help you on your journey to Posole town!!!

Eat good my pretties.

The ingredients shot all artylike.



Das Ist Kunst. God, I could marry an avocado.



Stewing, if you will.



As I have said before if your bowl of Posole does not look exactly like this, then you have, in fact, failed. Make it work people.



Cute kids I have cooking class with on Wednesdays. We cook. We giggle.It's a blast.



I want a fruit roll-up.
