Spicy Chicken and Hominy Soup Recipe

This slow-cooked soup is also called "posole," a traditional good luck New Year's meal in my native New Mexico. Everyone makes it differently—my soup answers the age-old chili question, "Red or green?" by using both!—Janet Christine McDaniel, Arlington, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 4 hours YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth, divided
  • 1 can (15 ounces) hominy, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil. With a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker. In the same skillet, saute onion and garlic in drippings until tender; add to chicken.

"I was born in New Mexico and we do not use chicken we use pork and we also use blended red chili , never Green chili for a can. We freeze roasted chili for the winter. Blended Dried Red chili. Garlic and oregano are the only seasoning we use. And use red chili only."
