Psole for a crowd


Do you ever get tired of the same recipes using chicken and want to try something different?

Enter Psole. A slightly spicy soup which uses hominy and tomatoes as its base. This soup is easy to throw together and can make you a star at the dinner table.

Serve with cheese, sour cream, avocado and cilantro as toppings. Yum!

Psole for a crowd

[Tweet "Shhh, Psole is even better the next day as the flavors meld together."]

My mom would often serve psole at our New Year's Eve party, but it is so good that I have the need to make it much more frequently. [Tweet "Psole. Once you taste it, you will be craving it too! "]

This recipe as written serves about 8 and if you need to feed a crowd, it is easy to double. The leftovers freeze well (if there are any left!), though you may need to add some more broth when you thaw the soup.

Want to know a secret? Cooking psole in the crock pot makes your life a breeze.

How does the cost break down?

All the ingredients for a double recipe will come to $8.29, which will easily serve 16 at a cost of $0.52/serving. Let's round up to a $0.75 per serving to include the price of the added toppings. This cost is based on using homemade broth and local prices.

Your budget and your stomach will thank you.

So whether you need a quick meal to pull together on a busy night or you have a house full of people to impress, Psole needs to be your next go-to meal.

  • 2 TBS of olive oil

  • 1 head of garlic, peeled and diced

  • 2-3 tsp cumin
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 10# can hominy (use 1/2 can and freeze the rest)

  • 1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • cheese for topping

  1. Saute celery, onion, and garlic together in oil in a large pot along with cumin and spices until soft.

  4. Simmer for a couple of hours to get the best flavor.
  5. Just before serving, chop up the cilantro and add to the soup.

NotesPsole is extremely user friendly. You can add or decrease the spiciness to your liking as well as changing the amount of how much you can make.[br]This soup works wonderfully in the crock pot. Saute the onion, celery, and garlic first and then dump everything into the crock pot and set it on low all day.[br]In a hurry? You can serve once the soup is hot.[br]Don't like chicken? You can use chunks of ham or leftover turkey too.3.3.3077

Ooh, I really like this recipe! I tend to have a lot of these ingredients on hand, so I need to try this. I am a big fan of crock pots, so this is on my to-make list. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Kristin, I think you will like this recipe. I really like using the crock pot because the flavors blend better when you cook it longer, but it's the second day which tastes the best!

Hi Darlene, thank you for stopping by! There are small cans, 28oz I believe, of hominy as well, if you don't have the room to freeze the extra. I would use one small can of hominy for about 4 people and two if you are feeding more or want leftovers. I have a large chest freezer and like to buy in bulk if I can. I love Psole, especially around the holidays.

Double checking on the #10 (gallon) size Hominy. That is a LOT of hominy and I don't use it. Only have a freezer over fridge, so wanted to make sure that was the correct can size as freezing the other half will take up real estate that I don't really have. Recipe looks good!

Hi Erin, I would make your broth super flavorful by first making a roux with olive oil (instead of butter) and flour. Add your cumin, salt, and other spices to the roux, probably adding a little more cumin. Then add your broth, the hominey and the chicken. I would add a small can of diced green chilis to get some heat or you can chop up 1-2 chipolte chili's with 1 TBS or so of the sauce, depending on how hot you like it. I would also add more cilantro. If you wanted to add some veggies, zucchini or spinach would probably work well. Let me know how it turns out!

Would this recipe be good without the tomatoes and salsa (especially since they are the base)? I'm nursing and can't do tomatoes or dairy right now, but love Mexican food. Thanks!
2016-06-22 08:34:23
Im going to try grits in place of the hominy. Just adding some to the broth when its done and let simmer another ten minutes. Different but close I think.

Helene, that sounds good! Let me know how it turns out.
