Chicken Pozole Verde Recipe: Go Green With This Traditional Mexican Soup Recipe

Pozole, which means "hominy," is a traditional Mexican soup recipe. This verde (green) version gets its color from tomatillos and cilantro. It's a hearty bowl of goodness that's sure to be a family favorite. 

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 to 55 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes to 1 hour and 5 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 pound tomatillos, washed and husks removed 
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, chopped (remove seeds and ribs for a less spicy soup)  
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (stems and leaves)
  • 1 can (28 ounces) hominy, rinsed 

Garnishes

  • lime wedges
  • sliced radishes
  • sliced jalapenos
  • chopped cilantro 
  • sliced avocado

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the chicken, tomatillos, onion, peppers, broth, oregano and salt in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, about 35 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and tender. Remove chicken, shred and set aside.
  2. Add the cilantro to the broth and blend with an immersion blender until smooth. (This could also be done in a blender.) 
  3. Put the chicken back into the soup along with the hominy. Cook another 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with desired garnishes.
