Pressure Cooker Pozole

pot all together

Pozole is an ancient pre-Colombian corn stew, made with corn kernels that have been soaked in mineral lime. The soaking makes the skins slip off and frees up niacin in the corn to be absorbed by the body. It’s much more nutritional than regular corn. You’ll find it as hominy in the Mexican food aisle of the grocery and it is pureed into a paste to make the masa that fills tamales. I was interested in making a recipe that I’d found on Serious Eats for a pressure cooker chicken enchilada sauce. However, I didn’t want to go through the handwork of making the enchiladas and I was in a stew mood. Check out that recipe and click onward to see how I pulled it together.Read the rest of this post…
