      Wash chitterlings throughly. Trim fat, leaving a small amount for seasoning. In a large sauce pan, cover chitterlings with water. Add red pepper flakes, minced garlic, black pepper, and salt. Cook chitterlings until tender, 2 to 3 hours. Drain and cut into serving sized pieces. Serve hot, at once.

      I buy cleaned fresh chitterlings from the butcher-this greatly reduces foul odors. I also added 2 hog maws to the chitterlings and boiled it all together. I cook them in the crock pot for 6-8 hours or overnight. Yummy. Tastes great with collard greens and fried corn.

      First, Chittlins are an acquired taste and they are not for everyone! Now being a Southern gal, this is typically how I make my Chitlins! I definitely recommend cutting off that extra fat (from pre-washed Chittlins) and even cutting the chittlins up in smaller pieces. Serve with Tabasco's Haberno and Lime Hot Sauce.....ummmmm... The best of the best!
