How to make it

  • If using dried posole corn (which I highly recommend), place the posole in a large pot covered with unsalted water, and cook for 3 to 4 hours, until the corn has softened. (Better done the night before; allow the posole to cool in the cooking broth overnight. Important: Salt should only be added when the kernels are nearly tender.)
  • Cut pork into 1-inch cubes and place in a large saucepan. Place chicken thighs in another large saucepan. Cut onion in half. In each saucepan, place each half of onion, 2 cloves garlic, cumin to taste, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 12 peppercorns and 4 Cups water. Bring each to a boil and skim foam from surface. Cover pork and simmer for 1 hour. Cover chicken and simmer for 45 minutes.
  • While meats are cooking, break open the chilies and remove the seeds and veins. Put the chilies to cook in a medium sized pot. Cover with fresh water and gently boil until chilies are very soft. Let the mixture cool then purée the chilies with a little of the cooking water in a blender to make a paste. Strain and set aside.
  • Remove cooked pork and chicken from broths with a slotted spoon, shred the meats and place in a large pot or dutch oven.
  • Strain broths and discard the solids. Add both broths with drained, cooked hominy and red chile puree to pork and chicken.
  • Put pot on stove top and bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 30 minutes.
  • Taste posole and add more salt if needed. Serve in large soup bowls and add condiments to soup as desired.
