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.

It looks good. I am spoiled by my Dad's posole and so I don't make it at home. I think I should try this winter.
Good luck on the biscochitos.

I have vegetarian posole a time or two. (the soup, not the hominy).

Anyone have vegetarian recipes for posole. BTW, I made vegetarian meundo a few times. Not bad. Tofu looks a little like the trip.

lard & brandy . . . two of my favorite food groups!

It is also a very easy recipe to make in the crockpot. That is how I usually make my posole and I add in the red chile while cooking. That way, all you have to do when it's done is serve!

Happy Holidays and Thanks for the comments!

I'm avoiding the shopping madness this year and wanted to make some NM holiday food to get us in the spirit. I hadn't made posole in a while but it turned out good. I usually use regular pork meat and I don't do pigs feet but I think my body was craving some cartalige and bone marrow because those pork neck bones were very tastey. One of my son's doesn't like posole either so I only made half the bag and the red chile with lots of pork meat is simmering on the stove, Biscochitos tomorrow.

I guess you could substitute vegetable stock for a vegetarian posole but I don't like menudo and have never made it so can't help with that stuff.

What are your favorite holiday foods?

Whoa. Is it legal to not like posole while living in New Mexico?

My mom passed away this year, im finding myself picking up the crockpot and carrying on the tradition of her posole.

She does a green chile one, with added chicken broth, (true story behind that addition is when i was young we lived in rural area and she was making fairly traditional red posole, when one of our chickens was hurt by a dog, my dad killed it to put it out of its misery and plucked it, but we didnt have enough freezer space for it, so they tossed it and the posole in the big canning pot and stewed it up, everyone loved it so much that year she has always atleast put some broth in.

Sofar so good, its got about another full day of crocking to do and it will be ready for Christmas eve!

Corn soaked in lye + red chile sure beats lutefisk.

Straight lye itself beats Lutefisk, doncha' know there.
