Slow-Cooker Mexican-Style Chicken and Hominy Stew
Why This Recipe Works
For the liquid for our Mexican-style chicken and hominy stew recipe, we settled on chicken broth, as it lent not only depth of flavor but body to the stewing liquid. While traditional posole rojo calls for dried red chiles, we found that their flavor was seriously diminished after hours of slow cooking, so we instead added chili powder along with the onions. Though the freshly rehydrated hominy produced superb results, the posole with canned hominy was still really good and saved a significant amount of prep time.
