VIDEO OF THE WEEK

 
Acclaimed Executive Chef, Bill Wavrin, of Glen Ivy Hot Springs fame, shares his Pozole recipe.


Despite our prime location in sunny Southern California, the chill of winter still upon us. There is nothing more comforting to the soul then a bowl of warming chicken soup. This version, with a Mexican spin, is one of Chef Wavrin's favorites.


This Pozole is not only delicious, but easy to make. Plus it’ll give you a little practice honing your knife skills. Give it a try!
