Pozole Classes:
Pozole has its roots in the Nahuatl language. Pozolli, pronounced Pozo-lee, is a traditional Mesoamerican stew known for its main ingredients of red or green chile, meat and the hominy maize corn. This meal in a bowl is indigenous to the tribes living among the U.S. Southwest and Mexico that include the Hopi, Pueblos, the Aztecs and many others. Because of migration patterns by indigenous peoples and the commerce that took place prior to the arrival of the Spanish, indigenous peoples exchanged goods and ideas, this included foods and recipes. Pozolli dates back as far as the tamale and was often viewed as a celebratory meal. This is why today we prepare Pozole for important celebrations, holidays and times of rites of passage. Little has changed from its original ingredients that we still use today. Instructor Raquel hopes you will join her to learn how to make this celebrated traditional dish.
