Ingredients

  • 14 oz. Pinto beans, dried
  • 14 oz. Dried Pozole, (prepared hominy)
  • 1 head Garlic, peeled
  • 1 White onion, cut into ¼’s

Preparation

  1. Clean the beans and soak them for 8 – 12 hours, discard the soaking water and rinse the beans.
  2. Place the hominy in a strainer and rinse until the water is clear.
  3. Place the beans, hominy, garlic, onion, Anaheim pepper, and coriander seeds in the slow-cooker. Add water (according to the instructions on your slow cooker). Cook on low for 12 hours.
  4. Check periodically and add more water if necessary.
  5. When the beans are cooked and the hominy has “burst”, remove the chile skins and add salt to taste.
  6. Serve hot in large bowl. Place garnishes on the table so everyone can garnish their own plate.

Chef's Notes

I recommend you slow cook this, it is well known that slow cooked beans are so much better!
If your slow cooker is small, half the recipe.
If you can’t find Anaheim peppers, you can use serrano peppers, but the flavor will change. Some people also prepare it with chile guajillo (chile Colorado) which is essentially dried Anaheim pepper.
The original recipe contains beef, but you can substitute with jackfruit, mushrooms or your favorite meat substitute. I prefer to simply omit the beef and I quite enjoy it. Enjoy!!
