Chicken Pozole Verde

Directions

Step one
In a large pot, place the chicken thighs, tomatillos, onion, jalapeño, garlic, cumin, oregano, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2.5 hours. Remove tender chicken thighs and break up into bite-sized pieces. Puree the stock ingredients until smooth (using an immersion or stand blender). Add the chicken back in. Add Anaheim chilies and hominy. Simmer for 30 min and finish with lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper to taste.
Step two
Serve with your favorite toppings.

TIPS

If you can’t find fresh tomatillos in your local market you can use canned, just drain out most of the juice from the can. Canned diced chilies can be substituted for roasted chilies. The spice and freshness of this dish pairs perfectly with a Mexican-Style amber Lager or a chilled glass of Oregon Pinot Gris.
