Number of Servings: 8


    8 cups reduced sodium Chicken Broth
    8 chicken thighs, bone and skin removed
    1 small can diced Green Chili Peppers
    1 tsp Oregano, ground
    2 bunches fresh cilantro
    1 large white Onions
    5 Tomatillos
    2 25oz cans of prepared hominy
    6 cloves Garlic
    1 tsp ground Coriander
    1 tsp ground Cumin
    1 TB Olive oil
    1 dash Salt to taste
    2 Anaheim Peppers
    3 Radishes
    1 Avocado
    3 Jalapeņo Peppers
    1 Lime
    3 Green Onions


Bring the broth to a boil with the chicken thighs, canned chilis, oregano, 1 green onion, and a handful of cilantro stems. Poach chicken over a low boil until chicken is cooked through and tender. In the meantime, process the tomatillos, Anaheim chili, 2 jalapeņos, white onion, olive oil, garlic, 2/3 of one can of hominy, coriander and cumin in a food processor. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly. Process one bunch cilantro and stir into the pan. Your verde will turn a deep green color. Taste and salt if needed. When chicken is finished, turn heat off verde. Shred chicken, and stir into the verde. Strain the broth with a slotted spoon, and discard the herbs and chilis. Stir the verde chicken mixture into the broth with the remaining hominy, half a bunch of chopped cilantro, and heat to a boil for five minutes. Serve by crushing tostadas into a bowl and spooning the soup over the top. Squeeze a quarter of a lime over the Soup, and top with chopped jalapeņos, cilantro, thinly sliced radishes, green onion, and thinly sliced avocado.
