A very, very long time ago, about a year after my husband and I were married, we went through a wedding phase. Every weekend, for that whole year, we had a wedding to attend.

This is not a traditional Mexican pozole, this is my version. Traditional pozole is made with hominy, it can be red, it can be green, it can be made in a million different ways. The color of the broth is what makes it different. In some states, it's made with a combination of dried chiles. In other states it is made with mole, a thick sauce made with chocolate, nuts, spices, and chiles. Mexican cuisine is huge in color and variety so that's what I'm calling this this recipe below, green pozole, my version.
Paletas heladas are a traditional summer treat. In every part of Mexico you can see guys pushing around carts, in parks and plazas, filled with paletas.
