Have you ever tried pozole, a Mexican soup packed full of pork or chicken and hominy? If not, you are in for a treat at Hacienda Sisal where it’s officially Pozole Day, jueves pozolero every Thursday.
Choose between pozole rojo, verde or blanco with pork or chicken. The rojo or red variety is flavored with dried guajillo or ancho chilies and comes from Jalisco. The state of Guerrero is famous for verde or green pozole, which includes jalapeño and poblano chilies, green tomatillos and coriander, and also for blanco or white pozole, which is the broth, meat and hominy. Everyone in Mexico has their own favorite and the tasty soup is a staple during fiestas.
The best thing about pozole is filling your bowl with the traditional accompaniments: shredded lettuce, onion, radishes, coriander, dried oregano, chili piquin and crispy tostadas.
Combine your pozole with an order of fresh guacamole prepared tableside and one of the Hacienda’s famous margaritas and you have the makings of a very tasty lunch or dinner. As they say here in Mexico, buen provecho!
