Crockpot Best Ever Posole
This recipe feeds a crowd and is immensely popular.
1 fryer chicken (cleaned and wrapped in cheesecloth with a little knot at the
top for handy removal)
4 sliced chorizo sausage links
2 cans crushed tomatoes
2 cans Ortega chilies
2 cans hominy
2 onions in eighths
6 cloves of garlic
TO TASTE: Cumin, cayenne, New Mexico chile, poblano chile, celery seed, oregano,
salt & pepper
(I use 4 tbsp. cumin, 1 cayenne, 1 small chile, 2 tbsp. oregano, but you're all
great cooks so tailor it to your family's taste!)
In crockpot, layer onions and garlic, half of hominy, chilies and tomatoes,
place cheese cloth wrapped chicken on top, and cover with remaining ingredients,
until filled to 1 inch from top. Cook on LOW for 6 hours, skimming off the fat
as it melts and adding more of the remaining ingredients as the whole thing
After 8 hours, remove chicken using the cheesecloth top knot as a handle. Place
in large bowl and debone when cool. Add chicken meat back to crockpot with all
remaining ingredients and juice which has settled at bottom of bowl.
Cook until heated through. Serve with lime wedges and corn tortillas.
It is so good and because of the cheesecloth, you won't find a bone in your
