NATIONAL MENUDO MONTH
During the month of January, learn a new culinary tradition with National Menudo Month!
Menudo is a traditional soup made with beef tripe and hominy, a favorite at Mexican family gatherings and special celebrations.
The secret to delicious menudo is quality ingredients, and the time it takes to prepare it – in order to be soft and tender, tripe needs to be cooked for up to 10 hours! That’s why menudo is the perfect dish for bringing generations together and for passing down traditions.
