  1. Remove the stem from the soaked chilli. Combine with 1/2 of chicken stock in a liquidiser or food processor and puree until smooth. Pour into a 5 or 6 litre slow cooker.
  2. Pour in the remaining chicken stock and add the beef stock, pork, chicken, onion, garlic, green chillies and white and yellow hominy. Season with the bay leaf, oregano and cumin. Cover and cook on High for 4 to 5 hours or on Low for 6 to 7 hours. Remove the bay leaf before serving.


Dried pasilla chilli, tinned diced green chillies, tinned white hominy and tinned yellow hominy can be found in Hispanic speciality shops or online.
Alternatively use fresh chillies instead of dried/tinned to taste.
Tinned sweetcorn can be substituted in for tinned hominy.
