How to Make Menudo


  1. Place hominy into a large pot. Add tripe, pigs feet, onion, oregano, garlic and peppercorns. Cover with 2-3 inches of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer for 2 hours. Add in chiles, cook for an additional hour and then serve hot.
  3. You may remove the pigs feet, remove the meat from them and replace the meat back into the pot before serving.
  4. Serve this soup with tortillas and chopped onion and cilantro and chopped green onion.
  5. NOTE: The original recipe calls for dried hominy. I used canned for the recipe. If you can find dried hominy then use it.

    Cover 2 cups hominy with water and soak overnight. Then place hominy in a medium pot, cover with 2-3 inches of water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook hominy for 2 hours, adding more hot water as necessary to keep hominy covered.
