Chicken Posole Soup

Chicken Posole Soup

is not exactly  Middle Eastern. It is one my sister shared with me and is much requested in our house  and I just had to share it with you. It is a great comfort soup and is good any time of the year.  Cheese quesadillas  are a great companion to this dish.  I have done this soup adding barley and pureed roasted tomatillos.  Here is the basic recipe for chicken posole soup, but you can add anything you like.

 

Chicken Posole Soup

Ingredients

  1. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 1 large onion, finely chopped
  3. 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  4. 1 poblano pepper, finely chopped (use another poblano pepper if you like more heat)
  5. 4 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  6. 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  7. 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  8. 4 cups chicken stock (if you choose to add 1 cup of barley, add another 2 cups of liquid)
  9. 2 15 oz cans hominy (white or yellow)
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  11. 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  12. fresh lime juice and fresh chopped cilantro

Instructions

  1. In a large soup pot, saute the onion and poblano pepper in the olive oil until tender. About 3 - 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add the remaining ingredients, except for the fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro. Bring to a boil, lower and simmer until heated through. If you add the 1 cup of barley, simmer for about 30 - 40 minutes or until the barley is tender. After serving in individual soup bowls, garnish with fresh lime juice and fresh chopped cilantro.

The next time you are looking for a comforting soup, I hope you will try this one.  I know you will enjoy it as much as my family and I do.  Enjoy!
