Prepare your pocket: this will cost to prepare the pozole due to inflation

The national holidays are a week away and in Mexican homes the brainstorming begins to know what dishes will be prepared, if it is not that in some it is already very clear what is going to be served.

In the September Consumer Magazine, the Federal Consumer Protection Office (Profeco) explains how much the budget should be if you intend to serve pozole, one of the most popular foods for this date. If you are thinking of making this dish, take note and prepare your wallet.

How much money is spent to make pozole?

Profeco’s budget contemplates a dinner for 10 people. The ingredients necessary for the preparation of the dish contemplated in the analysis are:

  • One kilo bag of hominy corn

  • Lemon ½ kq
  • Garlic 1 head
  • White onion 3 pieces
  • Oregano 100g
  • Piquin chili 100 g

In addition, four accompaniments were proposed:

  • Corn toast 1 package of 25 pieces
  • Bulk cream 1 kg
  • Bulk cheese 1 kg
  • Jamaica water (4 L) 100 g

Only the ingredients for the pozole would be 248.51 pesos. If you decide to add accompaniments, you must add 110.31 pesos more to the bill, so the total bill would be 358.82 pesos, that is, 35.88 pesos per person.
