There is nothing better than a warm, spicy bowl of green chicken pozole on a cold night and this is possibly one of my all time favorite soups.  After having a delicious, but definitely not weight watchers friendly pork version, at my favorite Mexican restaurant I had to find a way to make this at home without ruining my diet.

1

Pour your chicken broth into a large soup pot and bring to a slow rolling boil. Add the chicken and cook for 10-15 minutes until cooked through. Remove and shred.

2

Meanwhile, in a blender, combine the poblano peppers, jalapenos, tomatillos, cilantro, oregano, and salt and pepper and blend until smooth. You may need to some water or chicken broth to help at this point to help it blend.

3

Spray a pan with cooking spray and add the green salsa you made in step 1. Simmer until it becomes a deep green, stirring occasionally. This will take about 8 minutes.

4

Add the green salsa to the chicken broth and stir together.

5

Add hominy to the soup and allow to cook for ten minutes.

6

Add shredded chicken broth and simmer for an additional ten minutes.

7

Serve in bowls and add your favorite garnishes – I love mine with a crunchy baked tortilla, queso fresco, cabbage, and lots of lime juice.

Enjoy!
