friends, the Gregg's, would throw a big party on Christmas Eve and make huge pots of Posole and Green Chile Stew, another Santa Fe favorite.
Softly falling snow, pinon logs burning in the kiva fireplace and luminarias set the scene. A chile/broth based soup/stew, Posole is a perfect crowd pleaser. The recipe calls for dried red chile pods but you could substitute red chile powder if needed. The posole or mixtamal is simply dried corn. Frozen or canned white hominy can be used instead.
