Slow Cooker Pork Pozole

Slow Cooker Pork Pozole

I found this 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

Slow Cooker Pork Pozole Recipe

    I can’t wait to start using my slow cooker again. I had one for years that broke and I have missed it dearly.

    Sounds good. I love stews. I love finding old recipes in magazines like that too. That is why I save all my old magazines.

      OMG, I have stacks of old magazines. Hubby is threatening to throw them away, so I’ve started cutting out the content I need.

    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.

      This was my first time making pozole. Next time I’ll try making it with chicken.
