This is even better with a diced-up chipotle chile and a little adobo added. I added a little bit of spinach too just for the heck of it.
I appreciate the effort to make this dish WFPB. However, the taste of this dish was very bland and very different from what my mom would make. My husband recently tried a different recipe that was much more similar in flavor to traditional pozole. If you want more of a traditional flavor, look for a recipe what uses dry chiles. If you are simply looking to try something different, try this! Just use broth instead of water.
I’d recommend veggie broth instead of water – and 4-5 cups versus 8. I also added more cumin and taco seasoning to add more flavor. I also added fresh avocado to the toppings. Yum!
Very bland soup. I followed the recipe but instead of 8cups I used 6. My family did not like it and I had to throw it away. Tastes nothing like Mexican pozole. I recommend looking for a recipe where dry chilies are used.
This worked out really well! I went with only four cups of water rather than eight, in part because I like my vegetables to stay a little firm/ al dente and I like my soups to be thicker in general.
I got a little bolder and went with one small serrano pepper (certainly hotter than a poblano, sometimes hotter than a jalapeno) but all of the adults enjoyed it, as did the teens. No one complained that it was too hot, but there were a few requests for a sip of milk.
We all liked it, it’s an original dinner that changes the routine. The flavors are very distinctive and pleasant.
