 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Dried posole or canned
  • -hominy
  • 4-8 cups of water
  • 1 ts Sea salt
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 3 Dried chipotle chiles
  • 1 tb Chili powder (optional)
  • 2 tb Corn or olive oil
  • 1 tb Whole cumin seed
  • 1 Onion, finely diced
  • 5 cl Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c Chopped jalapeno peppers
  • 2 c Cooked seitan, cubed
  • 1 tb Mexican oregano
  • 1 ts Sage
  • 2 tb Fresh lime juice


To prepare posole: rince dried posole and soak overnight (or up to 24
hours). Rince and place in heavy pot with enough water to cover. Bring to
a boil, then add sea salt, chipolte chiles and bay leaf. Cook for 3-4
hours, until tender, adding water as necessary. You can also pressure cook
posole for one hour and simmer for an additional hour. The goal is to have
the posole kernels split open and tender in a gently flavored broth.

To prepare stew: saute cumin, onions, garlic and jalapenos in oil with a
pinch of sea salt. When cumin is fragent and onions are translucent, add
seitan cubes and continue to saute until seitan is seared. Add oregano and
sage and saute for one more minute. Add mixture to posole and continue to
cook for one hour. Taste and adjust seasonings about ten minutes before
finishing. Add lime juice 5 minutes before finishing. Garnish with chopped
tomatoes, avocado and cilantro. Serve with warm tortillas.

Cook's note: when using canned posole or hominy, pre-soak the chipotles and
chop finely before adding with bay leaf and salt. Cook for one hour before
proceeding with the stew directions.
