A bowl of pork, avocado, and hominy in a red broth on a cutting board with tortilla chips

Slow Cooker Pork Posole

A slow-cooker riff on Mexican posole that has a lot of the same complexity as the classic minus all the tending and stirring on the stovetop. Still certain to satisfy.

A white plate filled with masala shrimp, with lime wedges on the side, and gives sprinkled over, to garnish.
