AH Posole! its a Mexican,New Mexican dish a stew if you will, made with hominy, red or green chili, pork its often served with avocado slices,shredded lettuce,limes and some other stuff I cant remember.I like mine with cheese and warm flour tortillas.Some people also cook it with either potatoes or rice I use neither as the starch in the hominy is enough for me.
I almost forgot the most important thing, we dont use canned hominy we have dried hominy you can also buy frozen it has to cook a long time to soften it, it pops open and has a nice chewy,corn flavor.It's as different as the cook some like it real bland I like a red chili posole with alot of flavor including beef base lots of garlic ,cumin and some oregano, I also like in a bit of chipotle in it.

I'm not afraid of starting with dried ingredients. But do you cook the hominy first and then add the rest of the stuff - or throw it all in together?

Please be so kind as to scope out the technique/ingredients for me, or point me to a good recipe.

gracias in advance.....

You can throw it all together or start hominy earlier it take a long time for the dried to soften it will never get mushy so count on it being a bit chewy.I like to soak dried hominy overnight and then cook it helps speed up cooking time a little.
