Pozole which means "foamy" is a traditional pre-Columbian soup or stew from Mexico, which once had ritual significance. It is made from nixtamalized cacahuazintle maize, with meat, usually pork, chicken, turkey, pork rinds, chili peppers, and other seasonings and garnish.
After colonization by the Spaniards, the ingredients of pozole changed, but the staple maize remained. It is a typical dish in various states such as Sinaloa, Michoacán, Guerrero, Jalisco, Morelos, State of México and Distrito Federal. Pozole is served in Mexican restaurants world-wide.
