A Brief History of Pozole, Mexico’s Take on Traditional Stew

 

 

Pozole is easily one of Mexico’s most iconic and beloved dishes, but where does it originate and why does no one pozole taste like another? Similar to stew or soup, pozole is popular across the country, although some regions lay claim to certain variations. With that in mind, here’s your brief introduction to this delicious Mexican dish.

What is it?

Pozole is basically a cross between a soup and a stew and is popular around the country, especially on events such as Mexican Independence Day and at Christmas, and most people associate it with any large family gathering. Pretty much all pozoles contain the base ingredients of pork, garlic and large hominy kernels (cacahuazintle), although there are several versions that use meats such as chicken instead, plus the added extras of shredded lettuce, hot sauce, diced onion, thinly sliced radish, a healthy squeeze of lime and avocado. It’s often served with tostadas and crema.

However, there are three types of pozole which rather appropriately mirror the colours of the Mexican flag – red (rojo), white (blanco) and green (verde) – and these all contain slight alterations to that base recipe. White pozole doesn’t include any red or green salsas, as you would imagine, whereas green pozole can include ingredients like tomatillos, cilantro and even jalapeños. Red pozole relies more heavily on chilies such as guajillo, ancho or piquin.

Where does it originate?
As with many Mexican foodstuffs, the name pozole originates from Nahuatl – pozolé, pozolli or pasole, which some claim means ‘hominy’ and others say means ‘frothy’ – and remains most popular in states that have the most common variations on it, such as Jalisco (whose red pozole is the most well-known), Guerrero (which uses green tomatoes in the broth) and both the State and City of Mexico. However, it’s also typical in Michoacán (where chicharrón is added), as well as Sinaloa, Zacatecas, Colima and Morelos. Either way, it’s completely pre-Hispanic in origin and was written about by many of the Spanish conquistadors and their party.

 

Originally, pozole was considered a sacred dish due to the use of the trademark large hominy kernels combined with meat. A slightly gruesome claim from pozole’s history is that it was supposedly once made with the human flesh of sacrificed prisoners. Pork was supposedly used as a replacement because of its striking similarity in taste to human meat, but try not to think about that the next time you’re enjoying a delicious bowl of pozole. However, other sources suggest the meat was that of the famous Mexican dogs, xoloitzcuintles. Is that better? We’ll let you decide!

Buying Property In Mexico:
A Step-By-Step Guide For Expats

 

The purchase process for foreigners looking to buy real estate in Mexico is simple and straightforward. If you’ve done your due diligence, and you are represented by experienced real estate professionals and a licensed real estate attorney, you’ll have no problems.

But you do need to have an idea about your property objectives before you dive in. Are you looking for property to live in… or are you looking purely for investment? The end use for your property may dictate how you go about purchasing it.

In 1917, the government declared that all land in Mexico would be “ejido,” that is, communal land used for agriculture and farmed by a collective of locals—not private property. Nowadays not all Mexican land is ejido, but it’s important for foreign buyers to make sure that any real estate considered for purchase is not classified as such.

Mexico passed the Foreign Investment Law in 1973, allowing foreigners to purchase real estate anywhere in the country—the only restrictions being border and coastal land (within 100 kms of international borders or within 50 kms of the coast). In 1993, the law was amended to allow for purchase within restricted areas through a fideicomiso—a trust agreement established with a Mexican bank.

fideicomiso allows a foreign buyer to hold property with all the rights and privileges of a citizen. With a single fideicomiso, you can hold multiple Mexican properties, own them in perpetuity, and will the property to your heirs. Plus, you can easily transfer the trust to another foreign buyer, should you wish to sell.

fideicomiso is good for 50 years and is renewable thereafter (by you or your heirs). It can be held by one or more individuals or by an entity (an LLC, for example). The initial setup costs range from US$500 to US$1,000, and maintenance fees amount to US$500 to US$700 per year.

Foreigners can also own land in restricted areas through a Mexican corporation, and these can be 100% foreign-owned. You should only consider a corporation if you’re buying real estate strictly for investment or business. If you plan to subdivide and develop land, a Mexican corporation makes sense.

Corporations come with more restrictions and reporting requirements than fideicomisos. They are required to submit monthly reports on income and expenses—completed by a certified accountant—to the Mexican Department of Treasury. And property held in a corporation is considered commercial, so it’s subject to additional taxes (VAT, for example).

The initial costs to set up a corporation will vary depending on the attorney that you use, but the minimum required is $50,000 Mexican pesos (about US$2,800 at today’s exchange). You’ll also incur costs for the certified accountant to maintain it (US$600 to US$800 annually).

No matter the use of your property, your attorney should be involved in reviewing its legal status, including title search, the review and preparation of contracts, and setting up your trust or corporation.

The buying process should play out like this…
