My NEW Favorite Weight Loss Dish

Authentic Mexican Pozole may become your new favorite dish. It’s now my favorite dish.

We recently went to Santa Fe, New Mexico and I discovered this quaint little restaurant that served Chicken Pozole. Usually, I like to try new items on the menu and It was so good, I ordered it three times! :)

It's got just the right spices to make your mouth and your metabolism feel fabulous.

Pozole is a great weight management tool because of its low calories. A bowl of pozole has 120-150 calories. It’s filling and nutrient-rich and amazingly delish!

Make this Delicious recipe and let me know how much you love it!

It's so Simple!


  • 1 lb. Chicken, Pork, or Beef (I prefer Chicken)

Fun Fact ...

📌Hominy comes from yellow or white maize, also known as field corn. Dried hominy kernels are soaked in an alkali solution of lye or slaked lime. This process, called nixtamalization, removes the hull and germ, making the corn easier to grind and cook with. Nixtamalization also helps the kernels release more of their nutrients, including niacin (also known as vitamin B3), and makes them easier to digest, too.
