Pozole is a Mexican stew that's typically made with corn. In this recipe, the corn used in traditional pozole soup is replaced with chickpeas, and the tomatoes are replaced with green tomatillos. It's then topped with shredded lettuce, sliced avocado, and fresh herbs to add extra greens into the mix. It's rich in flavor and is best eaten with corn chips on cold days when you have hardly any energy to spare.

Without the posole corn or hominy, it's not really posole at all, is it?

No no no. Pozole didn't have chick peas. Is white corn.
