Slow cooker chicken posole (mexican stew)

1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken trimmed and cut into 1 in. pieces.
1 14.5 oz. can hominey (yellow or white, it doesn't matter).
1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with green chilies ( I used rotel).
1 4 oz. can chopped green chilies, drained
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, such as onion, pepper and celery. I use fresh vegetables and sautee them till softened.
1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
1 garlic clove, minced1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4tsp. black pepper
1 lime, cut into 4 wedges.

1. Place all the ingredients except the lime in a 4 to 5 quart slow cooker.
2. Cover and cook until the vegetables are tender, 4-5 hours on high or 7 hours on low.
Serve with lime wedges.
May also garnish with chopped cilantro.

This only serves 4, so I usually make a double batch and freeze some for later.

  1. Hi.
    I noticed you have my blog on your blog roll list. Thanks! I've never visited your blog before, so I'm going to take a look around. I see your pregnant...well, we have something in common there. I am down in the depths of pregnancy hell right now. And, I love that you include recipes on your site. Stop by some time and say hello!
    And, you live in Nevada? Where?

  2. I'm pregnant with baby #3! It was an oops moment, but we are very happy. I'm due June 30th. What about you?
    I live in Mt. Charleston, it's still considered Las Vegas, but it is a whole different world up here.
    Do you have any other friend bloggers in Vegas?
    I'm interested in meeting more Vegas "blogging" Moms :)
    Your blog is very cute, I enjoy reading about your pregnancy.
    If my e mail is on here, send me a message, I'd love to chat.
