So I had this leftover pork, and needed to do something with it, so I decided it was the perfect candidate for pozole, which has got to be one of my all time favorites. I made it a bit differently than I usually do, and the results (IMHO) were pretty darn good.
I started with some chicken broth (I like Pacific Foods organic), a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles, and a big (24oz?) can of Mexican style hominy. That was followed with a chopped onion, and the leftover shredded pork. For seasoning, I added one dried California chile (that I pulled out whole before serving) and some Mexican oregano. Make sure you get Mexican oregano for this. It’s a different plant from the Italian kind, and tastes quite different.
That all simmered until the onions were transparent. I served in big bowls with plenty of space for fresh garnishes. I used cubed cheese (Cassero in this case), diced avocado, and shredded lettuce.
