Rojo Bison Pozole by @KiowaFoodie

Do you stockpile dried peppers? Or pass them in the grocery store and wonder what to make with them? Trust me, you can do more with dried peppers than just make chili. One of their better uses is pozole––a hearty Mexican stew that is healthy and nourishing year-round. This traditional stew features a paste made from peppers and toothsome hominy, and it works well with bison cuts braised to tender perfection.

You can level up this recipe by buying dried hominy and preparing it, which I recommend. It will take more time and effort, but the toothsomeness and flavor will outshine the canned version. I also recommend a mix of dried peppers to add complexity and dimension. Feel free to add in some canned chipotle peppers. Use what you have on hand, experiment, and have fun. Serve hot and garnish each bowl with a sprig of cilantro and a generous squeeze of lime juice.
