This brothy soup is made with smokey chipotle, spicy ancho chiles, and tomatoes for a rich base. Then we add hominy and roasted cremini mushrooms for some chunky texture. On the side: cumin tortilla strips, cilantro, and queso fresco to top or stir into the soup as you like. The pickled veggie slaw, made with Mexican oregano, green cabbage, red onions and carrots, is tasty on the side or stirred in—your choice!

It didn't seem to have the warm depth in seasoning that I am use to in other Poole dishes I have eaten or made
2 Stars
Consistency - Munchery's biggest problem. Will it be a nothing but pint of hominy with 2T of El Pato? A pint of El Pato with a whole mushrooms requiring a knife for your soup? Veg puree? Any condiments? Sometimes its good, always a total crapshoot.

The side order of this is better than the entree.
1 Stars
This is nothing like pozole. Overcooked hominy with four tiny mushroom caps in a slightly spicy tomato sauce. I wasn't expecting authentic but also wasn't expecting a blatant rip off - don't call it pozole if doesn't resemble the dish.
3 Stars
Wasn't spicy. Kinda bland and thin
1 Stars
Ew this was not pozole! It was a tomato sauce (literally the kind you dip chips in). So disgusting. I had ordered it before and it was fine. They must have changed ingredients or chef.

Was good!

I was blown away by how good this was. This meal is both filling and spicy which makes for a tasty vegetarian meal

Excellent! Very tasty, satisfying.
2 Stars
Not spicy, hardly veggie, technically pozole (I mean, it has hominy in it). Tasted canned. Otherwise forgettable.
5 Stars
Best veggie dig ever!
5 Stars
My husband says this is fantastic, with just the right amount of spiciness. I can't eat it because of the onions, but wish I could!
4 Stars
The soup was a smooth spicy blend but the mix-ins made it very special and extra delicious.

Did the recipe change?

Delivery was so bad. My deli container was broken on the bottom from the delivery person throwing the food over my gate. She clearly had my phone number.
5 Stars
Tied for the best meal I've had from Munchery. Not too spicy. I added an avocado, which was delicious. Loved the pickled veggies, too. Yum!!

Fantastic! One of my favorite items ordered so far

The side dish smelled like rubber chemicals.
5 Stars
Sooooo good! A hearty, healthy great cold weather dish that'll warm you up and delight your tastebuds!
4 Stars
As much as I enjoy the pozole, the slaw goes in the trash, which bums me out. It's highly pickled/acidic. The spicy pozole has enough acid and pop. IMO it would be better served with a creamy, unpickled slaw or a nice piece of cornbread or both.
5 Stars
This was so freakin delicious. I was sick with a cold and wanting some comfort food and this was just what I needed. Tasty and hearty with a bit of a kick and a lot of flavour.
5 Stars
Good and not too spicy
4 Stars
Tasty dish. Wish it was spicer. Will definitely give you gas LOL
5 Stars
Soup was awesome. Cole slaw not so much
1 Stars
Tasted strange, like the mushrooms were not so fresh. Needed much more broth, almost none-- the hominy soaked it up a lot.
1 Stars
Tasty but was over 600 calories for a soup. Double my steak and potatoes meal in both calories and fat. I should have looked at the nutrition info before ordering. This is much more of a stew than soup, there was barely any broth in my order.
5 Stars
Incredible! Wish it was offered more frequently, Crunchy chips are perfect with the large chunks of mushroom, etc. Warm, delicious and filling plus a kick of spice. Ideal for these cold winter nights.
3 Stars
The cabbage tasted a bit old but the soup was great! Could have used a little more.
3 Stars
This was very different then the first one I had. Very little broth
1 Stars
Not good at all. I threw away most of this.
2 Stars
Was really lacking in flavor
4 Stars
Very interesting dish with all the addition ingredients to add in. It's a bit spicier than expected every time I order it but, for an occasional dish, it's satisfying. I add the focaccia bread and herb butter as a side dish to make a nice meal.
1 Stars
Very disappointing dish. I didn't even receive the tortilla strips with the order. Taste wise it was fairly bland. It seemed as if it were poured straight from a can into the plastic container.
5 Stars
Really outstanding and rich. It's hard to believe there isn't meat in this dish. The flavors are very deep and robust. A very wintery one-dish meal, perfect for a cool evening.
5 Stars
Love it
3 Stars
Not my favorite textures. Hominy and mushrooms worked well together taste-wise, but not texture-wise.
4 Stars
Delicious. Loved the toppings and tangy slaw.
1 Stars
I wish I had know the cilantro would have been mixed in with the queso, I hate cilantro and love cheese so I didn't enjoy this as much as I'd hoped.
1 Stars
Another disappointment. Before this was a delicious 5-star dish. Today it tasted like flavorless salty water with little hominy & no seasoning. Portion also half the size. First order in 10 days. If this continues I'll be gone from Munchery for good!
1 Stars
Pretty awful actually. I'm sure I've eaten canned soup that tasted better.
4 Stars
Poole was filling and tasty, but was certainly not spicy. I am not even someone who likes really very hot and spicy, but I had to add some Tabasco and chipotle chili powder to add more flavor.
4 Stars
More broth less chickpeas than before. Still tasty but not as filling
3 Stars
The broth had outstanding flavor but overkill on the mushrooms. And the slaw added little to the dish (I took one bite and tossed it). Would be a better meal served with a side like corn bread or a different take on veggies.
5 Stars
delicious and sooooooooooo yummy
5 Stars
Mostly hominy, but luckily I love hominy :) I was worried it wouldn't fill me but it was perfect!

Super bland

Wonderful flavor, nice to have a veggie pasole. Not spicy but still really good.

Veggie is an over statement! It was just corn. Threw most of it out.

This dish is very good and filling. Even has a smoked flavor to it, is what I tasted
2 Stars
Quality control needed! What I got was just a big clump of hominy and hardly anything else. Too bad, because the tiny trickle of broth provided was really good--richly flavored and subtly smoky.
5 Stars
Flavorful and delicious! Just needed a little more broth. Tortilla strips added a nice crunchy texture. Cabbage slaw was a perfect side. Will definitely order again.
5 Stars
This soup is great! The broth is rich and spicy. By leaving of the queso (that's included on the side) it works for a vegan. I loved the whole mushrooms, and how much hominy it has. It's really great with a squeeze of lime before eating.
2 Stars
More like a stew due to the lack of liquid!

Another favorite dish on the Munchery menu. Very flavorful and well seasoned (I think we're on a roll!). I'd order this again in a heart beat!

It's just not good.

So good!

Good/interesting spice (not very spicy though, but ok), small portion, felt like a lot of mushroom for the portion. Overall good to average.
5 Stars
Delicious!

The spicy veggie pozole was really good! Amazing spices, good texture and turned out to be a lot more filling then expected.
5 Stars
Great combo - mushrooms yummy but wee bit too thick - slaw tasty
5 Stars
Love this! It's nice and spice, and the hominy is nice and soft. I don't use the tortilla chips as they are very hard, but overall a great dish! It's so hard to get a veggie pozole, and this one is as good as the one at Gracias Madre.
3 Stars
Flavor was good but too many mushrooms not enough hominy, which is the main part of pozole. Toppings were great too.
4 Stars
vegetarian but so tasty! definitely recommend

This has been one of the best posole I've had — looking fwd to ordering it again.
5 Stars
This was super tasty! Great combination of flavors from smoky to spicy to sweet to tangy.
5 Stars
Fabulous smoky flavor. Unique and delicious. Crispy tortilla strips add an interesting texture. Cabbage slaw's pickled taste is a bit unusual, but by the end of eating it I really enjoyed it as well.
