Turkey Pozole Soup
Breathe new life into cold-weather fare with this light-tasting, quick-cooking, south-of-the-border Turkey Pozole Soup. Pozole is a thick, hearty soup from the middle of Mexico’s Pacific Coast region. Traditionally served at Christmastime to celebrate good blessings, there’s no need to save this big-flavored soup of hominy, onion, garlic, dried chiles, and cilantro just for the holidays. And while pozole is usually made with pork or chicken. Turkey is a great option, too, especially if you have a little left from Thanksgiving. But if pork or chicken is easier to come by — feel free to use one of them.
