Just a spelling comment: it is written pozole, and the original recipe uses pork instead of chicken.

Pozole cures everything! I always eat it when I am sick with a lot of lime, and it helps me with colds, flus, everything! It's one of my favorite soups, red or white, it's always right!

Thats sounds pretty interesting. What exactly is hominy? I'm southern so I automatically think grits, when I hear that word.
