>From the LA Times. Recipes by Patricia Quintana The Times Test Kitchen modified Quintana's recipe slightly to make it easier to prepare. The original version calls for pork head, leg meat with fat, pork loin, pig's feet and bones for stock. We compromised by using just one cut of meat, pork butt, along with neck bones, and we used canned hominy rather than cooking dried corn. Guajillo and puya chiles are available in Latino markets.

POZOLE: Boil water in Dutch oven. Add garlic, onion, pork meat, neck bones, chicken wings and salt to taste. Boil until liquid is reduced to 3 quarts, about 2 hours. Remove from heat. Cool meats in stock, then drain and shred, discarding chicken skin. Skim fat from stock and reserve stock.

CHILE: Wash guajillo, puya and de arbol chiles and remove stems, seeds and veins. Soak in water to cover 1 hour. Puree chiles, tomatoes, onion, garlic and oregano in food processor or blender. Strain to eliminate peels. Season lightly with salt.

ASSEMBLY: Heat chile and Pozole Broth to same temperature and combine. Add reserved shredded meats and hominy and heat to serving temperature. Serve in large individual bowls. Arrange romaine, cabbage, radishes, onion, chile piquin, oregano, tortillas and limes in individual bowls and serve as garnishes to add to pozole as desired. 6 to 8 servings.
