For the next two days, families are gathering to celebrate Dia de los Muertos by remembering friends and family members who have passed on. And along with the classic sugar skulls--food plays a big role. Ingrid Hoffmann, host of the Univision’s Delicioso and author of Latin D'Lite: Delicious Latin Recipes with a Healthy Twist, shares her favorite recipe for Mexican Pork Pozole. The hominy-based stew, usually made with pork shoulder, is also perfect to warm you up this time of year. Ingrid recommends that you set bowls of shredded cabbage, avocado, radishes, chopped cilantro and lime wedges on the table so each person can flavor their Pozole as they wish. And don't forget to keep plenty of tortillas and Mexican beer on hand!
