Hi, Zoe! Here's a great posole recipe from my mom. I believe that she
got it from the Atlanta Journal and Constitution. It takes no time at all
to fix it and it tastes great. We have used it as a dip for tortilla
chips and as a topping on nachos. There's rarely any left...what there is
left, mom sends to us, her starving college kids!! I do have one
question, though. How do you pronounce it? :-)
