Sara's Secrets: Green Posole with Chicken
A recipe from the "Shop and Serve" chapter of Sara's Secrets for Weeknight Meals. In this section of the book, Moulton gives several ideas for recipes that can be put together with the help of convenience products from the supermarket. Here she uses a rotisserie chicken for a hearty, tasty soup.
This recipe is easy to put together, and can be garnished with any of the suggestions given below (I've added a couple of ideas to the suggestions offered in the book) or none at all -- the soup tastes great all by itself.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
1 cup bottled salsa verde
4 cups chicken broth
1 rotisserie chicken, skin and bones discarded and meat shredded
Two 15-oz. cans white hominy, rinsed and drained
Salt and pepper
For garnish: chopped onion, avocado, or tomatoes; finely sliced radishes; shredded cucumbers or napa cabbage; tortillas or tortilla chips; chopped cilantro; lime wedges; queso fresco or shredded Jack cheese
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the salsa and cook for 5 more minutes.
Add the chicken broth and simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes. Add the chicken and hominy and simmer until heated through. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. To serve, ladle into bowls and offer garnishes on the side.
