Posole is a mexican hominy stew. (You can find hominy near the canned corn in your grocery store). While hominy is a must in traditional posole, all the other ingredients are up to you.  You can make posole rojo (red) or posole verde (green). It can be spicy, or it can be mild. Traditional posole is made with pork, but chicken is certainly an easier option. You can also make vegetarian posole as well as turkey posole.  

I made posole rojo once long ago, but this posole verde recipe with diced green chiles and a poblano pepper is by far my new favorite! I used a rotisserie chicken and then added lots of garnishes.
