Pozole is a traditional soup or stew from Mexico. According to anthropologists, this pre-Hispanic soup was once used as part of ritual sacrifices. These days chicken, pork and vegetarian pozole versions are readily available in more everyday surroundings. Made from hominy corn with plenty of herbs and spices, the dish is traditionally stewed for hours, often overnight. Once ready to serve, lettuce, radish, onion, lime and chilli are sprinkled on top. Pozole is frequently served as a celebratory dish throughout Mexico and by Mexican communities outside Mexico for such common occasions include Mexico as Independence Day, birthdays, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
