Pronounced (poh-SOH-leh)This is a comforting stew that reminds me of my childhood. It's a big hit. I enjoy eating this with cheese quesadillas. Most people find comfort in a bowl of chili or chicken noodle soup. This is my comfort food. The hominy gives the body of this great stew a nice texture. I double this recipe because it tastes even better the second day.
