Quick and Easy 20-Minute Chicken Posole

Quick and Easy 20-Minute Chicken Posole


"This is a quick and interesting recipe to prepare posole for unexpected guests or to take to a potluck party. My husband loves it. I have played around with this recipe A LOT. You can use 1 (10 ounce) package of frozen corn instead of hominy, or delete the chilies or olives. I prepare mine depending on whether children are going to eat it or not."
