Slow-Cooker Green Chile Posole
The secret to flavorful Slow-Cooker Green Chile-Chicken Posole is browning the chicken in a skillet before transferring to the slow cooker. This will give the chicken great color and flavor. Once the chicken is removed from the skillet, cook the onion and garlic in the drippings. After they've softened, add the green chiles, cumin, and oregano. The mixture should be deliciously fragrant and have your mouth watering already! Add the veggies to the slow cooker and stir in broth and salt. The Posole will cook on low for about three and a half to four hours, or until the chicken is tender. Add the hominy the last 30 minutes of cook time. The recipe calls for shredding the chicken once it's thoroughly cooked. This process should be a breeze because the chicken will be fall-of-the-bone tender by this point in the cooking process. Add about a cup of Monterey Jack cheese to the slow cooker and mix until the cheese is fully incorporated. We like garnishing each serving with fresh radish slices, cilantro, and avocado; but feel free to use whatever toppings you like.
