  • 2 lb pork shoulder
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 28 oz can hominy (drained)
  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes (pureed in blender)

For serving

  • cilantro for garnish
  • 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 limes (sliced into quarters)
  • tortillas for serving


  • Add all posole ingredients into a 6-quart slow cooker. Heat on high for 6 hours, or until meat is easily shredded with a fork.
  • Remove any large chunks of fat in the soup and shred pork (often best to remove the pork from the pot to shred, then add it back in)
