2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Start the pozole

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups]. Finely chop enough of the remaining onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup] for garnish. 

In a large sauce pot over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the coarsely chopped onion and chile spice blend, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the pozole

  • Rinse the pinto beans and hominy.
  • Crumble the queso fresco if needed; set aside for garnish.
  • Cut the lime into wedges for garnish.

To the pot with the onion, add the pinto beans, hominy, tomatoes, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the broth is thickened, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the pozole to individual bowls and garnish with the cabbage and finely chopped onion. Sprinkle the queso fresco on top and serve with the lime wedges.
