Vegan Chicken Pozole

What you need: 

4 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cubes vegan chicken bouillon
4 cups vegan chicken strips, diced or shredded (I use Morning Star)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup carrots, shredded
10 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups salsa (I use garlic cilantro)
29 ounces white hominy, drained
1/2 tablespoon oregano

What you do: 

1. Add bouillon to water, and let dissolve. Cook chicken as directed on the package; set aside.
2. Heat oil in pot over medium-high heat. Add carrots and cook for 1 minute. Add garlic, cook and stir for 1 minute.
3. Add salsa, cook and stir for 1 minute. Add broth, hominy, and oregano, then bring to a boil.
4. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered for 8 minutes or until carrots are tender. Stir in chicken, heat for a minute. Ladle in bowls then add desired garnishes.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Amy, I think I used La Victoria Fire Roasted Diced Green Peppers and Old El Paso mild enchilada sauce.  You can find either at any grocery store.

I used fresh oregano but the enchilada sauce was KEY to the awesome flavor.( Good call Mercy95).  I also added some diced chilies and an onion and let it all simmer for about 20 min making the whole process only 30 minutes!  Very yummy and hearty and I'll make it again!

what brand did you use?
