What's Pozole?  Well, besides DELICIOUS...Pozole is a Mexican Pork and Hominy Stew.  There is a little work involved but, it is worth every ounce of effort.  My family LOVES this meal!! 

1 pound pork roast or boneless pork ribs, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 small dices onion
1 fresh pablano chili, diced
6 plum tomatoes, diced
1 can (15 ounce) white hominy, including juice
1 can (15 ounce) yellow hominy, including juice
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. dried cumin

Saute' the pork in a non-stick pan in a little oil or butter until will browned and halfway cooked; remove meat from pan and saute' the diced onion in the same pan you browned the meat in.  Add the meat, the onion and all the remaining ingredients to a crock pot and cook on low heat for six to eight hours. 
Garnish with fresh cilantro, avocado slices and fresh lime, hot sauce or salsa and the best part is COJITA cheese, YUMMY! When I make this I always make a double...but then again I am always feeding a crowd of people. 

 I love this because I can brown the meat and onions the night before.  You can also dice all the veggies and have them bagged in the fridge.  Sunday morning I get up and chuck it into the crock pot and...TA DA.....Dinner! My very favorite part is the COJITA cheese...don't forget is so good!!!
Now for dessert...Fried Ice cream!   Well...sort is fried ice cream, no fried!
4 cups vanilla ice cream
3 cups Honey Bunches of Oats (or your favorite brand of almond cluster multigrain cereal), crushed.
2 table spoons butter, melted
1 tsp. cinnamon

8 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon

First, using a large ice cream scoop, form 8 1/2 scoops of ice cream. 
I put them in a sandwich baggies and twist the top and roll it a bit to form a ball.
 Then, right back into the freezer until firm.  

Put cereal into bag and crush.  This time I used a cereal I have not used  before (OATMEAL CRISP) It was a bit crunchy but had a great taste. 

Mix crushed cereal, butter, and cinnamon.  Put in shallow dish.  Remove ice cream balls (I do it one at a time) and roll into cereal.  Pack cereal around ice cream ball until completely covered.  Return coated ice cream balls into the freezer. 

To serve, stir together the honey and cinnamon.  Place ice cream ball on a serving plate or in a cinnamon coated fried tortilla cup.  Drizzle 1 table spoon of the honey mixture over each serving. I also put a little whipped cream on top!
