Menudo is a classic mexican soup fabled as a weapon used to battle "Montezuma's Revenge". It is very popular in Mexico making Mexico a significant export market for beef stomach from the US and Canada.

This recipe was given to me by my wife's aunt Sylvia (after 6 years of begging) and is not as labor intensive as some recipes but the flavor is fantastic.
