Karen From Colorado's Note:
Menudo is a traditional Mexican dish; a frequently spicy soup made with tripe. It is often thought of as a cure for a hangover, and is traditionally served on special occasions or with family.

- 1Cut the tripe into small squares and put them into a large pan with the veal knuckle; cover with the water and bring to a boil; lower the temperature and simmer, uncovered for about 2 hours, or until the tripe and knuckle are just tender but not too soft.
- 2Meanwhile, roast the chilies by placing them in a 350 degree oven until skins are browned or blackened, turning them once; place them in a bag to steam until cool enough to handle.
- 3Peel and cut the chilies open and remove seeds and the veins; cut into strips.; add to the meat while it is cooking.
- 4Remove the knuckle and allow to cool enough to handle; strip off the meat; chop roughly and return them to the pan.
- 5Pour in the hominy.
- 6Simmer the menudo slowly, uncovered, for an additional 2 hours.
- 7Add salt to taste.
- 8Sprinkle with oregano and serve in large, deep bowls.
