We decided to expand our content with the new year and we are going to be adding some of our favorite recipes. These recipes will be easy to fix or meals and treats you can take on the caching trail. If any of you have any recipes you would love to share, we would love to try them and feature them on our site.  Our first recipe is one of our favorites and can be started before you leave for a day of caching and finish when you get home, then enjoy! I wish I would have had some of this delicious Posole waiting for me after our  100 caches in a day (read about it here) challenge.
Darcey's Delicious Posole' Easy delicious authentic Latino dish. I learned to make this in New Mexico from my extended family when my Grandfather passed away. Over the years I have changed the recipe to make it my own version. Warning: If you start making this, you will be asked to make it all of the time! Picture is without diced tomatoes, once they are added the broth turns a reddish color, tomatoes optional, I prefer it with them. posole

  • 1/2 cup chopped radishes
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese (Mexican blend or cheddar)
  • Salsa
  • Flour Tortillas to dip in soup while eating

Directions:

After preparing the pork roast in the crock pot* *(2-3 lb pork roast placed in crock pot with 1/4 cup soy sauce on low for 4-6 hours, you will be able to determine when the roast is done by pushing on it with a fork. When it falls apart it is done, shred with fork inside the crock pot so it absorbs the juices) After shredded add all of the ingredients. Stir well. Once everything is added make sure you add enough water to cover the hominy. Slow cook for 4-6 hours. You will be able to tell when it is ready when the hominy is soft. After it is cooked serve in bowls and add optional garnishes. I am attaching some pictures to help you see what seasonings you need and what the finished product should look like. Put the roast in crock pot night before on low when you wake up, shred the meat and add the rest of the ingredients. Turn crock pot to low and head out for a day of caching. When you return your house will smell so good and you will have a delicious warm dish to feed your hunger.
