One of my favorite things to make as the weather beings to cool off is soup and/or stew. When I was planning out what to make this week Stephen buzzed in and wanted me to make Pozole. Apparently when we were browsing through one of my cookbooks he saw a recipe for it. I had no idea what Pozole was, but after reading through the ingredients I was entrigued. He begged me to make it, he even went to the store with me and helped pick out some of the ingredients. I guess he had eaten it a few times while serving his mission and grew to love it. He said the first time he was terrified because he didn't know what hominy was and started gagging. Great, I thought, you gagged... why are we making this?! He assured me that it was delicious and that he was just creeped out because he didn't realize hominy was just puffed corn. I told him I'd give it a try, but I was pretty skeptical.
He suggested serving it with a side of tortillas. Since store bought tortillas aren't very authentic I went to Pinterest and looked for homemade tortillas. I found a pin I had saved from a while back and followed the link. I was pleased with the comments and reviews it was given so I gave it a try. I added a bit of sugar and substituted some of the all-purpose flour for wheat flour. They turned out to be really tasty, along with the Pozole. Stephen was incredibly happy and I was pleasantly surprised by just how delicious it all was (really, I'm kind of a picky eater and I loved it)! He couldn't stop thanking me for making it and for doing such a good job. Success!
