Pozole is the Spanish word for Hominy, which is a parched corn.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. You will need a 10” round non-stick pan.
In non-stick skillet, lightly fry corn tortillas in canola oil till the edges are slightly crispy. Set aside on paper towels.
In same pan with 1 teaspoon of oil, sauté corn, red pepper, yellow pepper, onion and chilies until slightly soft. Do not over cook.
Add Hominy to the pan with vegetables and mix until combined.
Squeeze about 1 teaspoon of lime over the mix, then add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
In 10” oven proof pan, place about ½ cup Frontera Guacamole Mix, then lay three fried tortillas to cover the bottom of the pan.
Add some vegetable mix, shredded cheese and spread more Guacamole Mix.
Continue to layer dish until ingredients are used up but reserve a ¼ cup of shredded cheese. Top layer should end with tortillas.
Cover with foil and bake in the over for 25-30 minutes. When the dish has melted and cooked together, remove foil, sprinkle with cheese, put back into the over just long enough to melt the topping.
Cut into triangular wedges and serve. This dish serves four and goes well with a side of Spanish rice and sour cream.
