This is a traditional recipe from the central part of Mexico and usually eaten on the weekends. While slightly spicy, this is a recipe that nobody can resist. I'm sure you'll love it! —Rodrigo Salas

What You'll Need
  • 2 Chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 1 Garlic head, washed and halved horizontally
  • 1 White onion, peeled and halved
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon Whole cumin seeds
  • 1 (28 0z) Can, white hominy with liquid
  • 1 1/2 cups Mölli Mexico City Cooking Sauce
  • 4 cups Chicken broth
  • 3 cups Water
  • 4 sprigs Epazote or cilantro
  • 1/4 cup White onion, diced (garnish)
  • 1 Avocado, pitted and diced
  • 2 Limes, cut in wedges (add juice only)
  • 4 Small radishes, diced
  • 1 cup Shredded lettuce
  • 3 tablespoons Dry oregano (garnish)
  • Salt to taste
  1. • Place the chicken, halved garlic head, halved onion, salt, cumin seeds, hominy, broth, water and Mexico City sauce in a 6 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours, until chicken is fully cooked. Remove chicken, place in a large plate and let cool.
  2. • Shred the meat into medium sized pieces. Return chicken to pot. Add the epazote or cilantro and continue cooking on low for 2 more hours. Discard halved onion, halved garlic head and epazote or cilantro springs.
  3. • Serve in large bowls with the diced onion, limes, avocado, radishes, lettuce and oregano on the side. Provecho!

I HATE recipes that require using a packaged mix such as this recipe does. There should be a corresponding recipe for the prepackaged mix, so that those who would not have access to the package mix can still make the recipe. I guess this recipe was really just to PROMOTE this product. So glad it appears no one has bothered with it.
