    Comes together easily (I love deglazing the pan w/the tomatoes and broth). Very, very tasty. My local market only carries white hominy in this size can, and it was fine. Very nice color, taste, etc. Loved the sour cream with it. Highly recommend the recipe.

    This is really a variant on a traditional posole (sometimes spelled pozole) which is a dish we have in Northern New Mexico. My mother used to make this for us as a traditional New Year's Eve dinner. I think it is better without any tomato sauce and cheaper when you use a pork shoulder roast and stew it all day (not really to be able to make "tonight," however) and shred the meat. Traditionally, you add dried red chile pods (New Mexico chile, of course) but I don't like the chile skin to get in my teeth, so I make a sauce and then add it to the posole.

    We are vegetarian so all I did was substitute the meat for vegi meat and added chipotle chili and fresh garlic.

    Very tasty and easy recipe. I will use this recipe as an everyday meal. I altered the ingredients by using chopped pork that I had purchased from our church when we had a BBQ fundraiser and I also used hominy that I reconstitued from the dried form. I added a little more cumin and chili powder.

    I have made it twice, the first time was how the recipt was written, which is good. I knew I could make it better. I deleted the Ground Red Chili and used dried chipole power 1/8th of a tsp, made a BIG difference, gave it a smokey flavor with out to much heat, but of course if you want it warmer, add 1/2 tsp. I used it as a dip as well as soft taco mixture, very good...

    Fantastic. So easy, perfect for a cold weeknight. Couldn't find hominy, so substituted kidney beans. Made no other subs. Hubby requested this to be added to the daily rotation.

    Yummy. I made this again. It is incredibly tasty. Easy to prepare. I don't even use the sour cream

    Delicious; I made exactly as directed, didn't change a thing. This will be added to my favorite chili recipes.

    I loved this chili...more of a soup in my opinion. I didn't have cumin though so I left it out. A little too spicy for our family so next time, I think I will leave out red pepper. So if you're not a huge fan of spicy stuff either, I would say great recipe, just tone down chili spices a bit. Thank you to creator of recipe!

    This was easy and delicious and my picky husband loved it so much he took leftovers to work! I made exactly as recipe is written and wouldn't change a thing. I loved using hominy instead of beans - no gas!!

    Followed ingredients and proportions with a few modifications. Used cubed trimmings from pork shoulder instead of chops, half poblano & half bell pepper, no tomato paste because we were out of it. Simmered til meat was tender. Pretty good.

    My husband who doesn't like soup or anything like it loved this recipe. I followed it exactly. I would be interested in trying it with the poblano like one of the previous reviewers did.

    This was really easy and tasty. The only change I made was to add chopped green chilies and sprinkles of cilantro on top of the sour cream. I served it with corn tortillas that enhanced the flavor.
