Quick Red Posole with Beans

Quick Red Posole with Beans by Terry Hope Romero from Viva Vegan

Posole is a Mexican long-simmered stew chock full of history, endless variations of ingredients, and the common thread of hominy. And sometimes you need hot posole stew and you need it . . . almost now! Posole loves to be topped with lots of salad like ingredients—crunchy cabbage, radishes, avocado—that coolly contrast with the soothing, warm tomato stew below. I’m a fan of canned hominy for fast and easy posole making. The canned stuff just requires a brief rinse to use, is cheap, and is ready for whenever you need this quick cooking posole. When you have a bit more time, try making Homemade Soft Corn Tortillas to go with this. Recipe from Viva Vegan!: 200 Authentic and Fabulous Recipes for Latin Food Lovers by Terry Hope Romero.
