15 Minute Pasole Recipe Just 5 Ingredients

It’s hard to get a yummy nutritious meal on the table some nights but this 5 ingredient pasole recipe comes together in just 15 minutes and tastes sooooo good.
It's a keeper made this 15 minute pasole recipe last night for dinner and the whole family loved it. SO easy and just 5 ingredients.

This pasole recipe is so yummy and really all you have to do is dump everything in a pot and heat it up. If you’re feeling adventurous you can serve it with some fry bread but tortilla chips would also be a yummy side for this easy weeknight meal.

It's a keeper. 15 minute 5 ingredient pasole recipe.

This recipe is adapted from something my local Trader Joe’s was tasting one day but they didn’t use hominy (probably because they don’t sell it) and I was like wwwwhhhhaaat how can you call that delicious soup pasole if it doesn’t have hominy. So after buying all the ingedients for their pasole I picked up some hominy and it made it PERFECT, well after I added more broth ;)

A new family favorite. Love this 15 minute pasole recipe. So good and easy. Perfect weeknight meal.

15 Minute Pasole Recipe


I’m linking a few ingredients so you know what to look for but the price on amazon is WAY higher than the market for both! (aff links)

  • 1 Jar Trader Joe’s Cowboy Caviar (this is spicy for a less spicy version use just 1/4 to 1/2 a jar or Trader Joe’s Corn Salsa)
  • 6 C Chicken Broth
  • 5-10 oz Shredded Green Cabbage
  • 12 oz Carnitas (or your own leftover cooked pork (or chicken) perfect for crock pot leftovers)
  • 1 Small Can Hominy


  1. Shred Carnitas with two forks.
  2. Rinse and drain the hominy.
  3. Add all the ingredients except the cabbage and bring to a boil.
  4. Turn down and add in 5 oz of cabbage. If you want to add in more do so. I like to reserve some to sprinkle on the top as garnish but I add almost the whole bag.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

So stinking easy right? And as a bonus you could keep all the ingredients on hand except for the cabbage and you could throw it together on one of those days and spare your family some not so yummy not so nutritious drive-thru option!

  1. Sounds perfect for a cold day! Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday. :)

  2. Except it’s not PAZOLE it’s POZOLE, and 15 minutes isn’t enough time to cook the hominy to get it to soften

    • Actually I see it spelled both ways on lots of reputable websites and dictionaries (that tends to happen when worlds from other languages get translated and adopted into Englsih. Also using the canned hominy it worked just fine to soften it up.

  3. This looks super appetizing and easier to make than I first thought! Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Recipe Link Party!

  4. I’m unfamiliar with pasole. What is it – a soup or stew? From the pictures it looks like a soup. Would love to learn more about your recipe. Thank you for sharing it on the #HomeMattersParty
