Maybe it’s the first time you’ve seen this dish, but we can guarantee it won’t be the last. This ultimate Mexican comfort food is a traditional soup oozing with warmth. I mean, anything that starts with tomato, garlic, jalapeno and onion is a winner for us. The extra layers of spice, hearty nuggets of hominy and notes of BBQ from our Pit Boss transform this recipe into one of our all-time favorite soups, no matter the forecast. Mas Pozole, por favor.
