From Our Chef: Pozole Mexican Hominy Soup

Despite our prime location in sunny Southern California, the chill of winter still upon us. There is nothing more comforting to the soul then a bowl of warming chicken soup. This version, with a Mexican spin, is straight from our acclaimed Executive Chef, Bill Wavrin. His Pozole Mexican Hominy Soup with Chicken is one of his wintertime favorites.
