After a while I have to start preaching and when I preach its all about chile. I am so damn fickle that when my buddy gives me some powdered from New Mexico I cant help but complain that its over roasted. I sent some super fresh stuff to a guy in michigan and I know it was good because I have several bags my self, although that oregano was darn strong - strong. Whats my point? Chile. I always revert back to chile.

The birthday went well and people stopped by that were unexpected and it all turned out real nice. We ate such a cacophany of flavors that it seemed like an excessive post.

this was the menu can easily be made to fit any this case it is meat eaters but if you want to do a non meat version just boil the corn more. (there is no non meat way)

This posole is the easy one


all the pigs feet you care to eat in two days

same with pork neck bone

two pounds of tripe




pinch of oregano

10 chile pods

boil all together(only 2 chile pods) for two hours or until tender.


chile pods with seeds ninus stems
2 peeled garlic cloves
fill a blender with about 6 or 7 pods add water garlic and another pinch of that oregano,
blend until smooth and after its smooth blend another minute.

warm sauce over low heat serve over


buy two cans of hominy
and warm up

ladle all together and you get this

Hominy is one of my favorite vegetables, but my family thinks I'm nuts!

This, as usual, looks fabulous DB!

Happy birthday! Posole is great. I prefer shoulder to trotters, though. Just a mental thing.

I fill my freezer with roasted Hatch chiles every fall.

Pig feet? I just can't bring myself to eat the feet of any creature, let alone pigs.

I know I know! I'm picky!

Love, love love love Posole! Where's the shredded cabbage? That's my favorite part.

Anndi said...

I've never had that... but it sounds yummy.

Happy belated Birthday!!

I have to admit that this dish is new to me! I'm not a big fan of pig trotters but it's certainly an eye-opener to see another recipe using it other than the traditional chinese vinegar pig trotter dish!

HAR said...

My dad ate this all of the time. I just can't do it. But thanks for the happy memories of my father this morning. :)
