Pork Chile Verde Stew (Whole30/Paleo friendly)

Last Tuesday was cold and snowy (unusual weather for Charlotte!) and I was in the mood for soup. I was thinking I’d try a Paleo/Whole30 version of chicken posole but couldn’t think of a great replacement for hominy. And I didn’t have any thawed chicken, ha. So I scraped together some random veggies, bone broth, and leftover kalua pig for this loose interpretation of my mom’s White Chicken Chili.

(Apologies for the picture! It was a last-minute snap just before we started eating.)
