Cacahuazintle corn, from cacahuatl, (cocoa) and centli, (corn), is the main ingredient of pozole; that for its grains so similar to cocoa it is named like that; It is also called "pozole corn" since it is the favorite for making pozole . It stands out for its large, round pods, with beans that resemble cocoa. This variety of corn has a rich history in Mexican culture and gastronomy and has been used for centuries to prepare traditional dishes such as pozole.

Since ancient times: in the ceremonies in honor of Xipe Tótec, the meat of the warriors sacrificed during the solar rites was cooked together with cacahuazintle, as described by Fray Bernardino de Sahagún in his work General History of the Things of New Spain.

 Since then they noticed that when the cacahuazintle was put to boil they released a foam that other breeds did not generate, that is why they baptized their corn broth as "foaming" pozolli. 

Its cultivation is very simple, very fast growing, it loves the sun and water, and as if that were not enough, it can be grown in a -large- pot.
