My favorite soup! I omit the tripe (sacrilege) because my wife says it feels like an old bathing cap. Followed the recipe as written, except substituted pork hocks for the veal knuckle. Worked just fine and tasted great. Cheers.

Thanks Karen! This recipe is almost a carbon copy of the one I had in my old recipe collection that has now been lost forever. I live in Thailand now and needed this recipe to introduce Mam, my Thai wife, to original Mexican food. She loved it and loved the smell of it cooking, as I always did. This was an expensive endeavor for me, since I had to order the hominy from a store online and have it shipped here. Can't get certain things here as easy as when I was living in El Paso, TX!
