I used a few different shortcuts in this posole recipe. Rather than follow the traditional method of toasting the chiles, then soaking and blending them, I used ancho chile powder and canned chipotle chiles for a quick, very flavorful, but not overly spicy blend. A bowlful of comfort, this stew will quickly become a favorite in your house.
