Thanks to my dear Mexican friend, I bring you Pozole! If you are like me and have never heard of this incredible dish it’s a cross between a soup and a salad and it’s just about the most filling and flavor-filled dish around! It’s also very colorful and easy to make 🙂

Ingredients for the soup:

  • 1-2 spicy finger peppers
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 cans of sweet corn
  • Quart of vegetarian broth
  • 4 cups of water
  • Salt to taste

Soup toppings:

  • 1/2 of white onion- diced
  • 4 radishes- thinly sliced
  • 2 Avocados- diced
  • Cilantro- fresh
  • Romain lettuce- cut for salad
  • Tortilla chips
  • 3 limes- halved

Directions:

In a food processor combine the spicy peppers and onion (remove or include the seeds of the pepper if to take the heat down or up a notch) and pour in to a soup pot. Add the chicken and cans of corn to the pot. Add the broth and water to the pot and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat for at least an hour until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. Add salt to taste, however the soup should taste fairly bland as most of the flavor comes from the toppings. When the chicken is cooked thoroughly, remove from the pot, discard any bones, shred and return to the pot.

Prepare the toppings on serving plates. Dish the soup into bowls and add a spoon or two of the diced onions, sliced radishes, diced avocado, cilantro, romaine lettuce, and tortilla chips. Finish with a good squeeze of fresh lime juice and enjoy!
