Homemade Pozole
Chicken(optional)

Layer onions, chicken and garlic into crock pot then add water and cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours. Turn off once cooked completely. Remove chicken and shred and save broth for rice or beans(optional)

5-6 Chili pods, remove seeds for more mild and keep seeds for more spicy
Place chili pods in saucepan with water. Bring water to boil and cook pods until softened. Strain cooked pods and place into blender.
