There are many New Mexicans who do not feel Christmas is complete without
several bowls of posole complemented with a fiery red sauce. Traditionally
made with ground or cubed pork this version made with chicken makes a
terrific low fat dish for a holiday buffet. Heat the oil in a heavy frying
pan and saute' the onion, garlic, cubed chicken and red chile, stirring
occasionally, until the chicken is lightly browned. Add the oregano, cumin
and bay leaves. Pour the wine and water into the pan, cover and cook for 30
minutes. Put the hominy (with the liquid) into a large soup pot. Add the
green chile and the chicken mixture (with the liquid) and cook, over low
heat, for at least one hour, stirring occasionally. Remove the bay leaves
and serve in soup bowls with the Holiday Red Chile Sauce NM. Lynn Nusom is
