Slow Cooker Chicken Pozole

Slow Cooker Chicken Pozole

Pozole is considered a celebration dish usually served for special holidays such as Day of the Dead, Christmas and New Year's day. Because it tends to be served during the cold months, the broth has to be at the right temperature when served and seasoned correctly.  Now, save some valuable time by making pozole in the slow cooker.  A warm bowl of this comforting soup will welcome your family home.
