It’s hard to get a yummy nutritious meal on the table some nights but this 5 ingredient posole recipe comes together in just 15 minutes and tastes sooooo good. This easy soup recipes is quick and delicious.

If you’ve never had posole sometimes write as pazole it’s a hearty latin stew style soup. This is a cheater posole but it’s full of flavor and definitely gives you the same comfort as a good traditional recipe.

This posole recipe is so yummy and really all you have to do is dump everything in a pot and heat it up. If you’re feeling adventurous you can serve it with some fry bread made with my 5 minute dough but tortilla chips would also be a yummy side for this easy weeknight meal.

This recipe is adapted from something my local Trader Joe’s was tasting one day but they didn’t use hominy (probably because they don’t sell it) and I was like wwwwhhhhaaat how can you call that delicious soup posole if it doesn’t have hominy. So afterbuying all the ingredients for their posole I picked up some hominy and it made it PERFECT, well after I added more broth ;)

15 Minute Posole Recipe

I’m linking a few ingredients so you know what to look for but the price on amazon is WAY higher than the market for both! (aff links)

  • 1 Jar Trader Joe’s Cowboy Caviar (this is spicy for a less spicy version use just 1/4 to 1/2 a jar or Trader Joe’s Corn Salsa)
  • 6 C Chicken Broth
  • 5-10 oz Shredded Green Cabbage
  • 12 oz Carnitas (or your own leftover cooked pork (or chicken) perfect for crock pot leftovers)
  • 1 Small Can Hominy

How to Make Posole

This is really simple to make on the stovetop. It comes together in just 15 minutes but if you want to make posole in your Instant Pot I’ve included directions for that below.

  1. Shred Carnitas with two forks.
  2. Rinse and drain the hominy.
  3. Add all the ingredients except the cabbage and bring to a boil.
  4. Turn down and add in 5 oz of cabbage. If you want to add in more do so. I like to reserve some to sprinkle on the top as garnish but I add almost the whole bag.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

So stinking easy right? And as a bonus you could keep all the ingredients on hand except for the cabbage and you could throw it together on one of those days and spare your family some not so yummy not so nutritious drive-thru option!

Instant Pot Posole Recipe

This is definitely a cheater recipe. But if you’re like me, you’ll love another cheat. Instead of babysitting your stove you can easily make this in the instant pot. Just throw everything in the liner except for the cabbage and cook on high for 8 minutes. Do a quick release in spurts so you don’t spray stuff everywhere. Shred the meat and stir in the cabbage when you’re ready to eat.

    Except it’s not PAZOLE it’s POZOLE, and 15 minutes isn’t enough time to cook the hominy to get it to soften

      Actually I see it spelled both ways on lots of reputable websites and dictionaries (that tends to happen when worlds from other languages get translated and adopted into Englsih. Also using the canned hominy it worked just fine to soften it up.

    I’m unfamiliar with pasole. What is it – a soup or stew? From the pictures it looks like a soup. Would love to learn more about your recipe. Thank you for sharing it on the #HomeMattersParty

      I’d say it’s kind of a hearty soup some might say it would count as a stew. But definitely filling enough for a meal
