Friday Faves......Crockpot Posole

This week has been crazy busy.
(Those of you who are regular readers will notice I didn't post my usual Wednesday writing piece.
There has definitely been no down time to write!)
We've had our annual ministers' conference going on here in town,
the usual busy-ness of church life,
some grandkid babysitting thrown in the mix,
and then we were up in the wee hours this morning to go to the hospital
 to greet the arrival of our Truelife Espanol pastor's baby girl!

It's weeks like this when you need some crockpot recipes up your sleeve.
I've made spicy, mexican posole the slow and complicated way and it's delicious.
What's not to love about a slow cooking spicy broth full of either chicken or pork and hominy,
then topped with cool crispy fresh cabbage, radishes, avocado, 
and maybe even some cheese, sour cream and cilantro?
This crockpot version is still delicious, but way less time consuming and complicated.
Top it with fresh ingredients, and you'll be hard pressed to notice the difference between it
 and the more complicated version.

Crockpot Posole
In a large crockpot place 1 1/2 lbs. pork or chicken cut into about one inch cubes.
 1- 28 oz. can Green Enchilada Sauce
 1- 28 oz. can Rotel Tomatoes with Green Chiles
2-3 cups chicken stock or broth
1 large diced onion
2 cloves chopped garlic
2 teaspoons kosher salt 
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
 Cook approx. 4 hours on high in crockpot.
One hour before serving add one large can white hominy drained and rinsed.
Top with fresh veggies as noted above.

It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a safe and BLESSED weekend!

  1. It sounds delicious! I've copied it to add to my list of 'Elizabeth' recipes to make! I need more and more simple, fast and/or crockpot meals. My life seems to be ramping up into a higher gear than ever. My dear, little mother will have eye surgery soon and I will be monitoring her medications and drops for a few days before surgery and for a month afterwards. You've given me some great recipes to enjoy and I think this one will be another one!

    1. Let me know if you give it a try! Love you friend, and praying for your mama, and you too!

  2. This looks so yummy and do-able. I need more crockpot in my life. :) Looking forward to seeing you when it works out. Bless you as you go about all the goings-on of full, good life. xoxo

  3. Sounds yummy! Thank you for sharing! God's Grace in abundance to you & your Hubby! Hugs~

  4. I've never tried anything like this and wonder if my husband would like it. He likes spicy foods, which aren't my favorite. My sour cream enchiladas are just about the spiciest recipe I have and they have only medium enchilada sauce. ;-) This is such a beautiful dish with that particular combination of fresh veggie toppings.

    1. Evelyn, let me know if you try it and how your husband likes it!

  5. Yummy! I will have to try this one Elizabeth! Have a great weekend!

    1. Kelly, I hope you like this recipe if you do decide to give it a try!

  6. This is something my family would love! I've never heard of it! You have a gift of welcoming us into your home friend.
