This pozole recipe came friom Bon Appetite, perfect for cold weather. It is one of those dishes that's better reheated the next day! Feel free to tweak spice and heat level. Like all recipes, it is a jumping off recipe. Take it where ever you want it!!
Note: I used 6 New Mexico Chilies, toasted in dry pan, removed stem and seeds, put in a bowl covered with boiling water for 1 hr. Then I processed it in my food processor and strained. I added the liquid to the pot along when I added the hominy. I also added about 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika while blooming the second batch of spices
