If you're not into pork, shredded chicken works great too. 

If you're not into pork, shredded chicken works great too. 

When you grow up in the New York and New England area you get to know your chowders and bisques pretty well but it takes friends from New Mexico to introduce you to the wonders of Posole!

Our friend Rob blew our minds when we tried his pork posole and we were siked to put our own spin on his recipe! This soup is a bit labor intensive but the outcome is well worth it especially with the help of Green Gypsy.

Rob suggests making this soup while listening to Dwight Yoakam or Crowbar. 

 

What you'll need:

-2-3 lb pork shoulder or 2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
-1 bottle Green Gypsy
-1 jalapeno, diced
-1 can green chiles, chopped
-5-6 tomatillos, husked and chopped
-2- 15.5oz cans of hominy, draind and rinsed
-3 cups chicken stock

-3 cloves of garlic, diced
-1/2 cup fresh corn (about two ears)

Put pork shoulder in the slow cooker, rub with half a bottle of Green Gypsy and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3 hours. While pork is cooking prep your veggies.

After 3 hours drain excess liquid from slow cooker and shred pork with a fork. Put back in slow cooker and add the remaining bottle of Green Gypsy, diced jalapeno, chopped green chiles, diced tomatillos, hominy & chicken stock, Continue to cook.

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil and season with oregano, cumin, salt & pepper until onions are golden brown. Add to slow cooker. Cook for another hour. (Four hours total in slow cooker or until tomatillos are tender) Then add corn to the soup. 

Garnish with avocado, radishes, cilantro & sour cream. Squeeze lime on top. If it's still not spicy enough for you, pour on some more Green Gypsy!
