Slow Cooker Posole - Mexican Soup
Slow Cooker Posole is a hearty Mexican soup that is a meal in itself. Each bowl is brimming with tender shredded pork, hominy, and bold seasonings that will jump right off your spoon!
- 2 lb pork shoulder
- 5 cups chicken broth
- 28 oz can hominy (drained)
- 28 oz can diced tomatoes (pureed in blender)
- 1 red onion (chopped)
- 1 roma toma (chopped)
- 1 tablespoon oregano
- 1 ½ tablespoon cumin
- 1 tablespoon hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
- 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)
Ladle posole into bowl then top with desired amount of shredded cheese and cilantro. Squeeze juice from one lime wedge into bowl and serve with warm tortillas.
