Chicken Pozole

Chicken Pozole

Pozole (or posole – same diff.) is the epitome of comfort food. I’ve written about my Mexican food ignorance, but pozole is another dish that was completely foreign to me until I met Sam. It’s his version of chicken noodle soup, except loaded with hominy (maize corn kernels) instead of noodles. In addition to being totally delicious and hearty when you’re sick, it’s a dish that my mother-in-law always makes during the holidays. And after five years together, I finally got the recipe. Merry Christmas to me! I’m officially a Guerrero. Even if I still struggle rolling my rrrr’s.

Tropical Chinese Chicken Salad

We’ve had an unusually warm Spring in Oregon, and I can’t bring myself spend the evenings inside cooking dinner. That means we’ve been eating lots of salad and no bake meals. Over the weekend I pre-cooked a bunch of boneless, skinless chicken breasts to use throughout the week. I’ve used the chicken in a variety of ways, including Chicken Salad in an Avocado and most recently, Chinese Chicken Salad with homemade asian vinaigrette. With macadamia nuts, of course. Because by now you know that I can’t avoid bringing tropical to the table.
