Mexican Chicken Pozole Verde
During the holidays we like to eat festive foods that will also keep us warm and toasty during the colder months. We like things that do double duty AND nothing is more festive than Pozole. This stew is either red or green! Perfect for this time of year.
Green Pozole with Chicken (Pozole Verde De Pollo) is a traditional Mexican stew that is typically made with pork and dried hominy. To make things easier many people use chicken and canned hominy which is what I did. I often have to take the easiest route with my hectic schedule.
The one thing about Pozole whether you make the red (Rojo) or green (Verde) versions they both include a lot of spice. The Verde version I made has jalapenos and poblano chilies. Both of these chile peppers can vary in heat level just depending one which one you get. Take each bite with caution. They can surprise you out of know where BUT you WILL be nice and warm! It’s worth it I think.
To help prevent that lovely burning in the chest feeling known as heartburn I plan ahead. Typically, with the holidays you have a pretty good idea of what you’ll be eating at certain functions. If I know I will be eating something spicy in the near future I run to my local Walgreens and buy Nexium® 24HR Capsules 42ct. It totally helps keep that frequent heartburn at bay with just one pill a day.
Nexium® 24HR Capsules may take 1 to 4 days for full effect so be prepared. I know I plan on savoring all those delicious and SPICY holiday foods! Do you?
Don’t let frequent heartburn control your holidays! See what Nexium® 24HR Capsules can do for you.
