Chicken Posole Verde Recipe #soup

About a month prior, I was sufficiently fortunate to go to the yearly Corn Quest with Iowa Corn and 9 different bloggers. It was such a stunning outing! (Possibly you got my Corn Salsa Recap Post half a month prior speaking about it?) We found out such a great amount about corn: how it's developed, how it's gathered and the a wide range of employments of corn, both in items and formulas.

Amid our trek, we had the joy of going to a cooking class at Whisk Away Café in DeWitt, Iowa. The proprietor, Laura showed us various ways that corn can be incorporated into cooking. Each formula we made utilized corn such that I had never thought of! We made canapés with polenta, apple dessert tamales utilizing masa and a corn meal utilizing canned corn. My most loved formula that we made, was the Chicken Posole Verde Recipe utilizing hominy.
