There are several Posole recipes here, and this particular Navajo Posole can be found 2 or 3 places on the net as well as in Spirit of the Harvest: North American Indian Cooking. But me and my family have enjoyed this recipe so much that I wanted to be able to share this with others on RecipeZaar. We usually serve this with white flour tortilias. Hope you enjoy this as much as we do. As a note we use canned hominy since blue dried posole(dried whole hominy) is not easily available to us. We have also easily adapted this to a crockpot. This recipe is from Marilyn Yazzie, Navajo, Tsenjikini (honeycombed rock) mother's clan, Tachiinnii (Red runs into the water) Father's clan. She favors using only fresh chiles, and likes it hot. She uses lean pork and no salt, for health reasons. If you're not so sure about fiery southwestern foods, use only 1 jalapeno, or use only mild green chiles, instead of jalapenos.Prep time varies depending on whether or not dried hominy is used.
