Celebrate Mexican Independence Day all month long with a Pozole taco

Mexican Independence Day is in the month of September. We turned a classic Mexican dish into a taco to celebrate!

Our pozole taco is filled with a pork shoulder that’s been braised in a chili sauce traditionally used for pozole. The taco is garnished with all of the traditional pozole toppings: shredded romaine, salsa verde, radish, cilantro, and corn nuts.  We took hominy and made our own corn nuts to add a delicious crunch to your taco!

And finish it off with a Charred Chile Margarita!

Our September Margarita of the Month pairs tequila with an array of peppers for a drink that is gently sweet, spicy, smoky and lightly vegetal. The Charred Chile Marg is made with organic Casa Noble Crystal Tequila, fresh lime, cane sugar, and charred peppers.

Each pepper in this margarita has its own personality. The roasted bell peppers are sultry and sweet, the jalapeño is spunky and vegetal, and the serrano is spicy and bright. Peppers are stars of end-of-summer produce, and this margarita is a total pepper party.  Hello, Happy Hour!
