Pozole represents a soup or stew made from nixtamalized cacahuazintle corn (meaning dried lime-treated maize kernels), and calls for the use of meat (usually pork, chicken, turkey, pork rinds), chili pepper, and other seasonings and garnish. Vegetarian and vegan versions also exist.
Variations of this dish constitute elopozole, white, green and de frijol (with beans) pozoles.
The dish is considered to have initially originated in Mexico, being widely consumed as well in the southwestern parts of the United States.
Pozole was mentioned in Fray Bernardino de Sahagún's "General History of the Things of New Spain" circa 1500 CE.
