Last year I had a wonderful soup at the potluck at the Boston Hills BBQ Festival. It was a very well run competition. It was a really cooker friendly event. I would highly recommend it if you can make it to go. Great combination of NEBS and KCBS.
The potluck was organized by Kim Groneman from the Multiple award winning Empire State Championship team- Smoke on Wheels. Let me tell you this is the lady you want organizing a potluck at any competition. She made sure to email and include everyone. The theme was Mexican.
The dishes were all amazing. Most of which I had tried before other than one item a soup. Pozole Soup. This soup is packed full with flavour. Perfect for all seasons.
We held a Mexican theme night this past weekend. This soup went over well with everyone. Thanks to Andy & Kim for the recipe.
The Pozole Recipe.
2lbs boneless pork loin
1 lg sweet onion, chopped
6-8 cloves garlic minced or pressed.
4oz can chopped green chiles
Oregano, Cumin, and Parsley (dried)
5-6 cups chicken stock
15oz Can hominy – drained.
Brown the pork in a couple TBS of olive oil.
Add onion and cook.
Add Garlic and stir.
Add oregano, cumin and parsley (pinch or two of each)
Stir in Chicken Stock.
Simmer 1-2 hrs until pork is very tender.
Add Hominy, and heat.
Serve with shredded Monterey Jack, and chopped green onions.
* For my soup I substituted Sisters Secret Fragrant Chile its available at Wellseasoned.ca and other locations. Its amazing stuff. I would highly recommend you get it. Additionally I only had vegetable stock and Maggi Chicken Bouillon -it worked.
