Mohawk Corn Soup 🌽 This is my attempt to replicate a soup I tried on Heritage Day at work a few weeks ago. I was able to obtain a list of ingredients, but no detailed recipe. At first I made it without the roasted hatch chiles because I didn't feel like driving over 10 miles out of my way to get them. It turned out bland. 🌶 So I got them the next day, but I must've left my brain behind because I didn't bother to try the chile before I added it to the soup ::cringe:: I did remove the skins and seeds, but this one chile was severely hot, and basically made the soup inedible. (I should've had a V-8!😂)🌡 I'm used to these chiles being on the mild side, so I never thought to taste test first. Hubs even ate half of another chile right out of the bag before I grabbed one for the soup, and it was normal. Luckily I keep homemade chicken stock in the freezer, so I fished out as much of the chiles I could & replaced most of the liquid with the chicken broth. It turned out ok, but I won't make that mistake again. 🔥 To make, I placed a pork roast with a large can of hominy in the slow cooker. I added enough water to cover, with garlic, onion, SnP & let that go for about 3 hours on high. I boiled the potatoes separately and added them to the soup when done. Next time I'll test the chiles first, but I would still add them near the end. 🍜 Interestingly enough, this tastes a whole lot like posole, but lighter. I garnished with cilantro and even some fried onion chips just because I had just gotten them. Have you tried this soup, or any other Native American recipes?
Amazing weekend! Had the best dining experience of my life at the Kitchen! When I was there, I fangirled out and met one of my fave actors from Desperate Housewives. Spent the next night living it up Tahoe style with some great people. Love you guys!
