Pozole rojo is a popular main course to serve around Christmas and New Year’s. It’s named for its signature ingredient, posole (a.k.a. prepared hominy), wonderfully chewy pieces of corn. It comes in many forms depending on where it’s made, and with what chiles. This one gets its smoky, earthy flavor and brick-red color from the ground dried anchos in our custom seasoning base. Topped with classic garnishes, including shredded cabbage, crisp radish slices, and chopped white onion, it’s one of our favorite comfort foods.
