Posole

We found this Posole recipe several years ago.  Although I cannot find the specific site where we found this recipe, it is very similar to the other posole recipes out there.  I notice the difference in the ingredient was only oregano.  The recipe we use does not have oregano in it.  So, I don’t know if we just adjusted the seasoning we use in this Posole, or it came without.  But, nevertheless, this was a good Posole and very easy to make, which made this recipe a win-win!

If you are interested to read a little tidbit that I was able to dig and write about this Mexican soup, read my other post on Posole.   This recipe was a hearty one too, and easy to make as well.

Oh, and I decided to give the gallery style from WordPress a try – so the format might be different than what you’re used to see.  Just click on any picture if you want to see a larger view.    Enjoy!
