How to Make Menudo

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place 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.
  • 2Reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer for 2 hours. Add in chiles, cook for an additional hour and then serve hot.
  • 3You may remove the pigs feet, remove the meat from them and replace the meat back into the pot before serving.
  • 4Serve this soup with tortillas and chopped onion and cilantro and chopped green onion.
  • 5NOTE: The original recipe calls for dried hominy. I used canned for the recipe. If you can find dried hominy then use it.
  • 6DIRECTIONS FOR DRIED HOMINY:

    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.
