Chicken Posole Soup

This soup is so delicious and is similar to menudo but without the tripe.

  • Whole Chicken- The bigger the better
  • 2 Large Cans of Hominy *Picture shown below for those who don't know what it is.
  • Pkg. of Menudo Spice Mix *Picture shown below for those who have never seen it. If you can't find this, you can try using about 5 tbs of chili powder. You can add more or less depending on your taste. 
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic (minced) or Garlic Salt
  • Half of an onion
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • Salt
  • Small Frozen Corn on the Cob (optional)

  1. Take your thawed chicken and remove the giblets.  Boil your chicken in a big pot.  Use the biggest pot you normally use for soups.
  2. Once the chicken is cooked, do not throw away the broth.  Remove all the chicken from the bones and put your chicken back in the pot.
  3. Once your chicken is back in the pot, you want to add the following to your pot:
  4. 2 Large Cans of Hominy (drained).
  5. Menudo Spice Mix.  Use the whole pkg.
  6. Half of a chopped or sliced onion
  7. 3 Cloves of Garlic (minced) or garlic salt is fine too.
  8. Salt- quantity depends on your taste
  9. Corn on the cob
  10. Fill the pot with more water almost to the top.
  11. Cook at medium to medium high heat until menudo spices dissolve and hominy is cooked. 
Your Posole is ready.  I hope you enjoy it!
