Pasole is a Mexican tradition. Making Pasole is kind of like saying you are making a Casserole.  The recipe contains hominy, and all other ingredients are based on family tradition.  Here is one recipe out of thousands.  A video from Your Life A to Z follows.


  • 2 C white hominy ( nixtamal )
  • 1/4 C each – Shredded chicken and pork
  • 6 tomatillos
  • 3 jalapeño peppers
  • 2 poblano peppers
  • SPICES:  Oregano, cumin, diced onion
  • GARNISH OPTIONS:  Sour cream, fresh cilantro, halved tostada shells, shredded lettuce, julienne radish, onion slivers, arbol chilies, oregano, green onion


  1. Start hominy boiling in salted water
  2. Simmer for 2-3 hours
  3. Meanwhile, wash tomatillos, and peppers
  4. Cut off stem and put into a blender (deseed peppers to decrease spice level)
  5. When hominy has finished cooking strain – reserving liquid
  6. Put hominy into soup pan
  7. Add just enough of the hominy water to allow the blender to fully process the peppers and tomatillo
  8. Combine hominy and pepper mixture in soup pan, and simmer 45-60 minutes
  9. Top with sour cream and cilantro leaves
  10. Serve with corn chips
