Posole or Pozole Pork Hominy Stew

Posole or Pozole Pork Hominy Stew

I was introduced to Posole or Pozole Pork Hominy Stew (Pozole Rojo) in Denver when one of my co-workers bought it to nearly every office “food day.” Those in the “know” snuck away to the buffet table before lunch to get some before it was all gone. Now, I’d like to introduce you! Succulent pork and hominy swimming in a rich, garlicky, chile-based broth; the taste is reminiscent of tamales.

Three Cheese Enchiladas with Braised Pork & Ranchero Sauce

My friend, Sandy told me about Three Cheese Enchiladas with Braised Pork & Ranchero Sauce, a dish she had at one of our local restaurants. And I tried it and went a little nuts over it myself. Then the restaurant sadly started to go downhill and I decided I just was going to have to make these beautiful, cheese filled enchiladas, with this fresh, tangy Ranchero Sauce and the luscious shreds of braised pork at home.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

I always love to make a Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. It’s so easy and there’s nothing like a set it and forget it recipe. Of course, this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork takes a bit of time but that’s pretty much time while you’re doing whatever you have to do. And then there is that tantalizing aroma filling your kitchen, driving you nuts, until the moment you open that slow cooker to this glorious pork and snitch that first bite before you even take it out. Don’t you tell me that’s just me!! I know you do it, too. Or maybe it IS just me?
