Southwest Pork and Posole Soup

Jenny Powers


This soup reminds me of New Mexico. It is loaded with the flavors of the southwest. I have been trying to formulate this for some time and I finally have. I hope that you enjoy this as much as I do.

How to Make Southwest Pork and Posole Soup


  1. Brown the chops in the bottom of a soup pot. Add the rotel tomatoes and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours.
  2. When they are fork tender, remove and shred the meat. Return meat to the soup pot.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in the soup pot.
  4. Bring soup to a boil. Lower the temperature so the soup can simmer for 1 to 1 hours.
  5. If you want a less spicy soup use mild rotel tomatoes.
  6. I like to top the soup with tortilla strips. You can find them next to the croutons.
