Posole

Karry Hosford

This Mexican soup's signature ingredients are pork and hominy. Look for hominy - corn from which the hull and germ have been removed - near the canned corn or in the Mexican food section of your supermarket.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups soup, 2 tablespoons crushed chips, 1 tablespoon radishes, 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion, 2 teaspoons cilantro, and 1 lime wedge)
