Posole is Mexican Stew. You can make it vegetarian/vegan or with meat. It works either way REALLY well. I am going to list all the ingredients for meat and include the vegetarian options in parentheses.

1 Can 15 oz Crushed tomatoes
1 can chopped tomatoes with green chilis, hot or mild
1 QT chicken stock (vegetable stock)
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed
1 can golden hominy, drained
1 small chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
1 lb sausage, browned or any leftover meat (just leave out meat, beans are a GREAT protein source)
1 tsp. chili power
2 tsp. cumin

You just dump it all in a stock pot or crock pot. 2 hours simmering in stock pot. In crockpot, 8 hours low/4 hours high You can even brown the sausage and add it at the end.

Serve over any carbs, rice, diced and roasted potatoes, quinoa, couscous, orzo or any other noodles.
