Chicken Posole Stew..."chicken," yummy spices and veggies. What's not to like? I love Mexican Tuesday. :) I served ours with homemade bread. I ended up throwing the cubed bread into the soup for our toddler because I got a little heavy-handed with the cayenne.
Slow Cooker Chicken Posole Stew
serves 4 – 6
Adapted from Chicken Posole
For the stew:
4 C "chicken"
2 (15 ounce) cans golden hominy, rinsed and drained (I didn't get to the store, so I subbed corn)
3 C vegetable stock
2 (14.5 ounce) cans of diced tomatoes
3 carrots, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
3 scallions, both green and white parts, sliced thinly
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. light ancho chili powder
1 1/2 tsp. Mexican oregano
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. salt, or to taste (I left it out)
½ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
Queso Fresco or other good quality Mexican cheese (montery jack would work)
Shredded radishes (Use the large holes on your box grater)
Gluten-Free Tortilla chips
Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker. Put remaining ingredients in and stir to mix in spices.
Cover and cook on low for 5 – 6 hours, or until carrots are cooked through and tender.
Serve with toppings if desired.
Oh my goodness. Why have I never had this before? So delicious and spicy (I added a little extra cayenne). This would be a vegan recipe, except for the fact that I used Quorn tenders (which have egg whites in them). I really liked the dish a lot. It's one of those things I've heard of before and never had (due to it's real chicken component). Love it.
