Posole will make you say “olé!”

After the huge snow storm hit and the roads were mostly clear, my boyfriend and I decided to venture to get some of our absolute favorite food at Tortilleria y Taqueria Ramirez! Typically when I go there I get there asada (steak) burrito (by the way, their burritos were voted #1 burrito in the south), which comes with rice, beans, slices of avocado, sour cream, cheese, beans, tomatoes and onion all wrapped inside of a house made corn tortilla (I’ve never liked a corn tortilla until I ate one here!), and it’s served with a slice of lime (One of my professors told me that that’s how you know you’re getting the good stuff).

Instead of getting my typical burrito, I decided to be adventurous and try one of soups that they offer called posole. I was a little hesitant to get the soup in the first place because it is one of the more expensive items on the menu, but when it was placed in front of me I knew why! They don’t just give you a bowl of soup, they basically give you an entire pot of soup! The soup contains pork meat, hominy and delicious broth. Along with the large bowl of soup, they also bring out a bowl of onion, lettuce, limes and you get a choice of either tortillas or tortas. I’m not exactly sure, but I think they might bring these “condiments” separately so you can season your soup to your desired taste.

I pretty much love every kind of soup there is; so I guess you could say that I’m a bit critical when it comes to eating new soups. This has to be one of the best soups that I have ever tried! The broth by itself is fantastic, but with the addition of the lime juice, onion and lettuce it just put it over the top. The hominy and pork were extremely tender and soft. I would recommend this soup to everyone!

  1. This is probably one of my favorite dishes. So, so good. As you’ll see in Tacopedia there are different ways to prepare this, with either goat or beef.

    I’m glad you were able to try this. For a snowy day, it’s perfect. How does it compare to a chimichanga?

    There’s some cool history behind this dish that goes back to the Aztecs. I’ll leave that for you to piece together.
