Fast & Easy Dinner: Green Chile Posole

Fast & Easy Dinner: Green Chile Posole

A rich and hearty posole is the perfect vegetarian meal for a chilly Fall evening. Thanks to the green chilies, this version packs a spicy, warming punch. Most of the ingredients are common pantry items, and the thick soup comes together in a quick 20 minutes. The recipe calls for fresh lime juice and fragrant cilantro as garnish, but feel free to top with your favorite Mexican fixings.

Thinly sliced radishes and finely grated cheese are equally divine add-ons. To learn the technique,

The crushed chips will add a corn-y flavor and when the posole cooks, the chips will break down to thicken the soup. They will give a thin broth more body.

And are you using chicken or vegetable broth? You have both in there.

Just one question...why are you putting crushed chips in there? I'm just trying to see if it is absolutely necessary cause it's seems a little weird to me

oooh - i don't even know what a posole is - but this recipe looks really good and since there's no meat- you're speaking my language. i've just started to get into eating things that have more heat in them, so this could be something to consider for one of my upcoming meals.
