This is a hearty soup that only takes about 1 hour from start to finish. I started looking at a Pork Posole recipe but did not have the time to thaw, cube, and brown the pork, but I did have a pound of ground beef in the fridge. I substituted 1 lb of ground beef for 2 lb of cubed pork; a red enchilada sauce for green; 1 can of beef broth for 3 cups of water; added garlic salt, achiote molido (ground annato seeds) and green bell pepper for flavor and color; and increased the cayenne for a spicier punch. I basically changed the heck out of the original recipe on the fly, but isn't that what having fun with cooking is all about? The soup got rave reviews from everyone.
