My husband loves Posole and when I told him I was going to change it up, he didn't look too excited. The warm baking spices and heat in this dish take your palate on a journey that is so satisfying. Super healthy and full of flavor. Make sure you follow the pairing!

If you haven't tried, go and try, this pairing is perfect with Firestone Walker's Tequila Sunrise! The fruitiness and slight tartness from the hibiscus cuts through the spicy savory notes of the posole. Enjoy!
