Pork and Green Chile Posole

1 small yellow onion
2 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil
2 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp mild red chile powder
3 oz. tomato paste
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3/4 tsp salt
2 cups water
3 cups chicken broth
4 oz. Santa Fe Ole Hatch Green Chile
12 oz. Los Chileros Organic White Corn Posole
1.5 cups shredded pork
1 fresh lime
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
Posole: Soak posole overnight, then rinse well. Boil posole in salted water for approximately two hours. Drain off water & put posole aside.
Finely dice the onion, then add it to a large soup pot along with the canola oil.
Sauté the onion in the oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, or until it is tender and transparent.
Add the flour and chili powder and continue to sauté for two minutes more.
The mixture will be fairly dry, so stir continuously to prevent burning.
Add 2 cups water, tomato paste, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt to the pot.
Whisk the ingredients together until the tomato paste is dissolved.
Allow the mixture to come to a simmer, at which point it will thicken.
Finally, add the chicken broth, shredded pork, diced chiles, and posole.
Stir to combine and then heat through (about 10 minutes).
Cut the lime into wedges and roughly chop the cilantro. Top each bowl with chopped cilantro and a wedge of lime to squeeze over top.
