I was inspired by the lady who was giving samples of tamales from Bueno Foods
at the grocery store. She gave me a recipe card for Holiday Posole from Bueno
but I did my own thing.
Braise 2.5 pounds of pork neck bones with meat, add favorite seasoning to taste (I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried minced onion and season all). Add posole (I used 2 cups of the frozen kind but dried can also be used) and water to cover. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer (add more water if needed) until posole is soft and meat is falling off the bones (3-4 hours). I'll make some red chile tomorrow but tonight I enjoyed it plain.
She also gave me a recipe card for biscochitos
and I've been wanting to make some so I bought 'lard and brandy', YUM, now there is a nice combo.
