- Mexican chili oil or cayenne pepper (optional)

- Once the chili peppers have soaked, blend the soaked chili peppers in a blender along with garlic, the water they were soaking in, and 1/2 tablespoon salt. Blend well and strain into the pot of simmering broth.
- Add hominy into the pot and simmer on low for 30 minutes.
- Once the hominy has simmered add the crispy jackfruit to the pozole and cook for 10 minutes.
