Heart Healthy Chicken Posole Recipe
In a 5-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery; cook until onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes.
Add garlic, cook for 1 minute, then add tomato paste, chipotle in adobo, and epazote or oregano; cook, stirring constantly, until evenly distributed. Add 1 cup water, 2 cans chicken broth and 1 can hominy. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer.
In a blender or food processor, add remaining 1 can of chicken broth and remaining 1 can of hominy and process until smooth. Transfer hominy puree to saucepan and cook for about 30 minutes.
To the saucepan, add shredded chicken and cilantro; season with salt and pepper, if desired. Cook until heated through. To serve, divide among soup bowls, and garnish as desired.
