I would assume that "red" posole means with beef and red chilies.

I've never heard of "white" posole, but assume that would be made with chicken and green chilis.

"Green" would be (probably) pork and green chilis, although you can make green chili with beef.

Personally, I use pork and red chili

I bought dried posole in NM on one of my last trips. I soaked it for three days and slow cooked it for hours and I could NOT get that @#$% posole to soften up. The product was terrible.

I usually use canned hominy as I can generally get it for $1.99 a #10 can (6# 6oz). I either make is soup style like the local Mexican restaurants do it or I make it a pork and hominy stew which I prefer.

In southern Mexico, pozole is more commonly flavored with red chiles (which makes the broth reddish in color). But there are other varieties that call for green chiles or even tomatillos. The nice thing about cooking is that you can do it whichever way you like! I like all varieties of pozole! Yeah, I would label it a "stew."

I mistakenly posted my son's prep photos for Pico de Gallo I think. I do have photos of their green pozole preps somewhere. They did use tomatillos and cubed pork in theirs. I used red chiles and maybe sliced ring sausage in mine. Both came out very good.

So ... if you use red chile and blue corn, do you get purple posole?
