Butternut Squash Posole

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Drain all but 1 tablespoon drippings from the Dutch oven.
  2. Add the celery, onion, and garlic to the Dutch oven; cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the oregano, chili powder, and cumin; cook and stir for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the broth, chicken, squash, kale and hominy to the Dutch oven. Bring to boiling, reduce heat to medium and simmer until chicken is cooked through and squash is tender, 18 to 20 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken; cut into cubes. Return chicken to pot. Stir in the cilantro, salt, and pepper. Divide among bowls and top with sliced radishes and lime wedges, if desired. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Buying and Storing

You'll find squash in a variety of sizes and colors ranging from yellow to camel. Choose firm squash that are heavy for their size. Avoid those with soft spots. Store in a cool, dry, dark place for up to 1 month. Once cut, store in the refrigerator up to 1 week.

One of my favorite soups! I scale back the chile pepper a bit and add extra stock. The textures and flavors are just wonderful.

My husband and I really liked this dish with chicken and vegetables. I don't like kale or chard, so I substituted spinach. I didn't have hominy, so I used garbanzo beans and I used skinless, boneless chicken not skinless bone-in thighs.
