Soup's On

Lower temps call for pozole. The rich, brothy stew gets its signature chew from nixtamalized corn, traditionally cacahuazintle. Its large kernel and soft, floury starch provide the perfect bite to counter pozole's spice and stand up to a plethora of toppings. First time nixtamalizing corn? Don't fret: pozole is the easiest place to start. No grinding required.
