This stew is inspired by the famous Mexican dishes like Pozole and Menudo.
It has the smoky kick of dried chiles and the tang of fresh lime juice, but not as thick as an American stew.
Serve with some cornbread or over steamed rice for a nice alternative to chili—I’m thinking this might be perfect Super Bowl fare.
Thinking Ahead: Although the hands-on time is minimal, the total cooking time is about 3 hours, so plan ahead.
Alternatively, this could be easily made in a crock pot and let simmer all day. Or, you could make it up to 3 days in advance and reheat when you want to serve.
