This was sooooo delicious! Thanks for posting this! I used 2 boneless chicken breasts, 3 chicken thighs and some boneless pork strips. This was heavenly! I used about 1T of the menudo spice in the soup and we used the rest as part of the garnish. Didn't use the "extra heat" as my 4 year old son wouldn't have eaten it if it were too spicy!

Very spicy but I really liked the mingling of tastes. I wouldn't add as much spice but it is excellent!!

This was excellent and not that difficult to prepare. I did add a can of black beans with lime juice and a can of diced tomatoes.
