How to Make White Pozole with Chicken

The hubster has a few favorite Mexican dishes that he really craves when the cold weather comes around. Pozole is one of them (along with menudo, tamales and mole). So I turned to my friend, Iris, and asked for her help in making white pozole with chicken for the hubster. Turns out, it was super easy to make! This is her traditional Mexican white pozole with chicken recipe.

Pozole is traditionally served during the holidays or on the weekend for family dinners. You can also make a red version of pozole by adding red chile puree (using ancho and/or guajillo chiles) while it cooks, and substitute chicken for pork.
