Pozole is one of my all time favorite meals so when a friend got a bad cold last week, I couldn’t wait to whip up a batch for her. The spice from the chiles and heartiness from the hominy make it a perfect meal when you are feeling under the weather. However since she is a vegetarian, I eliminated the chicken I normally use and replaced it with some diced zucchini and extra hominy.

Instructions

  1. In a blender combine the poblano peppers, jalapenos, tomatillos, cilantro, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper and 1 cup vegetable broth. Blend until smooth. Taste and make sure it is spicy (a little spicier than you like) and well seasoned. Add more jalapenos or poblanos if needed.
  2. Add to the slow cooker. Pour in remaining vegetable broth and hominy.
  3. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  4. Add the zucchini and cook for 30 more minutes.
  5. Serve in bowls and add your favorite garnishes I love mine with a crunchy baked tortilla, queso fresco, cabbage, and lots of lime juice.
