Slow Cooker Pork Pozole


I found this slow cooker pork pozole recipe while I was flipping through an old issue of Women’s Day Magazine.  I had never heard of Pozole before, but it looked interesting and pretty easy, so I decided to try it.  I did do a little research and learned that Pozole is a stew that originates from Mexico.  I served it with tortillas as suggested in the recipe. It was quite tasty and was very filling.  Slow cooker pork pozole recipe

    I make pozole all the time but the kiddos prefer chicken and since its healthier I use that. Never made it in the slow cooker though but I can see that its totally doable! Oh, and I’ve never used the recaito, we always just prep our own chiles for this.
