  7. Sprinkle with cilantro if desired and serve immediately.

What is posole?

Posole is a traditional South American soup or stew that is traditionally made with long-simmered pork, hominy and many herbs and spices. Here we’ve replaced the pork with quick-cooking, flavourful chicken thighs. If you like, serve your posole with warm corn tortillas to soak up the broth.
