Lunch / Dinner
Originally from the middle of Mexico’s Pacific Coast region in Jalisco, posole is a classic soup typically served at Christmas to celebrate good blessings. But why wait? This rich and hearty version is worthy of any fiesta you’re planning. This posole is a lightly spiced soup that’s full of tender pork, tomatoes, and hominy in a smoky, garlicky broth. No wonder the people on staff love it. Make this soup a day ahead so it has a chance to develop even more flavor. Plus, if you’re serving it at a party, you’ll have more down time.
Brown pork in oil in 2 batches in a large pot over medium-high heat; transfer to a plate. Reduce heat to medium, add onions, garlic, cumin, oregano, coriander, and bay leaf to pot, and sweat, covered, until onions soften, 5 minutes.
Stir in broth, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, chipotle, adobo sauce, and pork; bring to a boil. Cover pot, reduce heat to low, and simmer until pork is fork-tender, 2 hours.
Add hominy, cilantro, and lime juice; season with salt and pepper.
Serve posole with radishes and avocado.
