Pozole is a favorite dish in the Mexican states of Sinaloa, Jalisco and Guerrero, but is quite popular throughout the Republic. In fact, the recipe is considered by many as part of Mexico’s core culinary heritage. Pozole is served mainly at weddings, parties, and in early morning attempts to ward off hangovers. The garnishes serve not only to flavor your soup, but function as an opportunity to socialize with the people at the table around you. Passing around the salsa or bowl of sliced radishes while customizing your bowl of pozole turns strangers into acquaintances, acquaintances into friends, and friends into family.
