White Pozole

A traditional Mexican soup with tender chicken and a kick of lime is enhanced by zesty garnishes. Have fun matching a variety of Toad Hollow wines with the fusion of flavors in this recipe.

Pairs with these wines...


1 whole chicken
2 limes
3 medium onions, in 1⁄2” cubes
6 cloves garlic, sliced
2 – 25 oz. cans white hominy, drained
2 Tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp ground coriander

Shaved cabbage
Fresh cilantro leaves
Diced jalapeños
Lime wedges
Radish slices


Place the chicken in a pot and cover with 6 quarts of water, add 2 limes, cut in half and juiced. Bring to a boil and simmer until cooked through. Remove chicken from the broth and discard the limes and allow to cool before pulling the meat off the bone.

To the broth, add the onions, garlic, hominy and spices and bring back to a simmer for 20 minutes. Add the pulled chicken meat and season with salt and pepper. Serve hot with selected garnishes.

Serves 6.
