    Happy Hippie's Note:

    This is the perfect red menudo. It takes a long time to cook so you may want to try this on a weekend if you work outside the home, but believe me, it so very good and actually quite simple to prepare. This is a meal in itself. This is fairly spicy, but you can adjust the heat level by reducing the amount of ground red pepper. Enjoy!

      This recipe is great and simple. I used pressure cooker to speed up the cooking process. I cooked the tripe twice as directed but I use pressure cooker instead. It cuts down the cooking process. Yummy!! My husband's grandma would have approved!!! Thanx!
