Waking up to Menudo

Introduction to Writing for Interactive Media



There’s nothing like waking up to your favorite breakfast meal on a Sunday Morning. No, I am not talking about pancakes, eggs, or bacon, I am talking about a fresh bowl of warm Menudo. Menudo is a red sauced corn stew with beef tripe being it’s most delicious attribute. This honeycomb delicacy gives the soup its texture and overall mouth watering appeal.

This stew comes together with meat and corn being boiled together with the fresh herbs and spices. The stew is then lathered with a bright red chile sauce, this gives the soup its prized aroma. When served; chopped onions, radishes, lime wedges, and dried oregano are ready to be topped on. One spoonful and you are in heaven but don’t take my word for it, try it out for yourself.


Menudo Ingredients:
5.5 lb. Beef Tripe cut in small chunks (cleaned and disinfected)
1 Cow’s foot cut in quarters
3.3 lb Nixtamal Corn / fresh Hominy
1 whole Garlic Head(cooked whole for flavor only)
1 small Onion
2 Bay Leaves
Salt to taste
Red Sauce:
½ lb Mirasol or Guajillo Dry Chillies
2 Garlic Cloves
1/2 Tbs Dry Oregano
