Chicken Chili

Update 2023: This post is kinda messy. It’s not really a chili. I was corrected by a mexican co-worker of mine that it is a “pozole“. Turns out that’s not really accurate either. Pozole is defined by the presence of hominy then a stew of this nature is built around it. So for now, this is chicken stew, Regardless, I need pictures for this so it’s gonna get redone!

This was recently featured at a corporate charity chili cook-off. While it didn’t “win”, it was regarded by multiple Latin eaters to be absolutely authentic!
