- In a blender, combine tomatillos, poblanos, jalapenos, cilantro, garlic and chunked out onion and pulse to coarsely chop. Add 1 cup of chicken stock and puree.
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon of oil. Add tomatillo mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens and becomes medium green, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat, add salt and pepper to taste, and set aside.
- While the tomatillo mixture is cooking, in a small stockpot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add half the pork and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove browned pork to a plate and set aside. Repeat with remaining pork.
- Add diced onion to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add remaining 5 cups of chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits. Add pork, hominy and oregano and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
- Stir in tomatillo mixture and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the pork is very tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve pozole topped with suggested garnishes.

Very yummy! I added twice the pork & hominy and used 8 Jalapeño. Still, it was very good. I should have also doubled the tomatillos and other ingredients to compensate for the double pork & hominy. Mine is a little on the thick side, like a chili, less like a soup.

First time ever eating pozole. So delicious. If I did it again I'd use one jalapeño instead of two, for the kids. But for myself I love the flavor and the heat.

Very tasty first attempt at Pozole. Will try adding cumin to leftovers as previous reviewer suggested.

Stick to the 1 lb of tomatillos, otherwise the broth is too much tomato flavor. I added 1.5 T of cumin as well.
