    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.

    1. 1
      Cut 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.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, 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.
    3. 3
      Peel and cut the chilies open and remove seeds and the veins; cut into strips.; add to the meat while it is cooking.
    4. 4
      Remove the knuckle and allow to cool enough to handle; strip off the meat; chop roughly and return them to the pan.
    5. 5
      Pour in the hominy.
    6. 6
      Simmer the menudo slowly, uncovered, for an additional 2 hours.
    7. 7
      Add salt to taste.
