Ask Plated: What Is Posole?

Find out more about the ancient Mexican stew called posole.

Posole, which means “hominy” in Spanish, is an ancient Mexican stew made with its namesake ingredient. But wait, what is hominy anyway? It’s essentially dried corn that’s been soaked in a mineral lime bath to soften the tough outer hulls. It adds an earthy corn flavor to savory dishes that need a little bit of texture. When ground finely, hominy can also be used to thicken stews or make tortillas.

You’ll have a chance to try posole in the Poblano and White Bean Posole recipe this week.
