Latin Crock-Pot: Perfect red pozole will warm you up from the inside

I come from a long line of amazing Mexican cooks. I don't claim to be one of them, but fortunately I was raised by them and have spent a lifetime enjoying the delicious foods that they make. Make no mistake that when my family cooks for me or for anyone, it's not just about food, it's about a whole lot of love too.

Por ejemplo, my tía serves me her specialties and I know it is her way of giving me a hug from the inside out. She makes an incredible red pozole and it's not anything I've ever served myself. Oh no, she cooks it, plates it, and presents it with pride while I sit at the table with lime in hand because I can't have pozole without lime. Man, I wish I could invite you over for some of my tía's pozole, but since I can't, you should just try making this pozole Crock-Pot recipe. Of course it's not made exactly like my tía's, but it still has some kick and hominy.
