Butternut Squash & Tomato Posole

November/December 2012

Your rating: None Average: 4 (57 votes)

Posole is a traditional Mexican stew most often made with pork and hominy (dried corn kernels that have been treated to soften the hull) cooked in a fragrant chile-based sauce. In this quick vegetarian recipe, we rely on the meatiness of pinto beans and butternut squash combined with hand-crushed whole tomatoes to make a satisfying stew.

Very Good, a must try!

This was very easy to prepare, even using a whole squash. Very flavorful, just the right amount of heat (if you are very sensitive, you might want to cut back on the chili powder and add cumin to taste). Even my kids, who tend to be extremely picky with soups and stews, really liked this. Will definitely make it again.

Absolutely delicious

This stew is a must try for vegetarians and omnivores. It is a great meal for cold winter nights that warms you up. The added avocado and cilantro give the stew such a fresh and savory taste. You must try.

Quick and easy

I made this for dinner the other night and it was awesome. The only addition I made was I added some cooked ground turkey I had, because I didn't think my guys would eat it without meat. I brought the leftovers for work the next day and everyone in the office stopped by my office when I heated it up because it smelled so good.
