Kayelle's Pollo Pisole

I made this tonight with what I had on hand and it turned out really well.

4 diced garlic cloves
2 cups sliced white onions
1 cut up green bell pepper
Saute above in a large dutch oven

Add:
1 4 oz. can of green chili's
1 10 oz. can of green enchilada sauce
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of Rotel tomatoes with chili's
1 29 can of drained white hominy
6 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut up
1 Tbs. ground cumin
2 tsp. Mexican oregano, crushed between fingers
1 tsp. cumin seeds
2 tsp. salt

Cook covered, low and slow, either on top of stove or in the oven. It could easily be done in a crock pot also.

Serve each bowl with crumbled Cotija cheese, and green onions on top.
Hot tortillas, on the side.

Actually, it's closer to being a stew, than a soup. Naturally you could use some broth to make it thinner.
Jenny, I had it covered in my dutch oven in the 250 degree oven for 2 hrs. It could be done covered on top of the stove in as short a time to get the chicken cooked....and the constancy you want.

OK, hominy is not something I have seen around here. Can I sub with something? Cornmeal maybe? Or is the consistency wrong?

Hmm, well there's really no substitution for hominy, Alix. A can of white beans would go well in this dish, in place of the hominy.
Pisole/Pizole (spelled both ways) refers to the hominy. You could call yours Pollo con Carne.

This is my first time using Cotija cheese, 4me, and it's a winner! I can't stand feta cheese, and I love the way this stuff crumbles like feta. Share some ways you use it?

We use it all of our tacos,sprinkled on salad or beans.Small pieces eaten whole (salty but good).Sprinkled on Enchiladas or Tamales anything Mexican.Good on a steak with some salsa.

You gotta try the Enchilado! It is the same cheese rolled in chili powder.It is not very spicy!
