Chicken Pozole Verde

It was kind a weird weekend, weather-wise. It’s mid-November and yet, it was 60 degrees and sunny. I mean, I’m not complaining or anything, we can put off the impending chill for a bit longer, but it certainly didn’t lend itself to fall cooking.

Truth be told, I don’t like radishes very much. It’s not that I DISlike them (you’d be hard pressed to find anything that falls into that list), it’s just that they aren’t my favorites….and I wouldn’t choose to have them around, generally speaking. They’re totally cute and their spicy crunch definitely has it’s place, but faced with an overabundance of them, I needed something new to do other that eat them in salads. Apparently you can cook them. I had no idea. You learn something every day.
