About the Recipe
Making the menudo is easy, only many ingredients have to be cooked and be very patient.
Put “Badia Crushed Red Pepper" to your soup because it will give a very good flavor and hotness.
You can use this white hominy to make the menudo. The disadvantage is that it is raw and you will have to carry out more steps to cook it but the taste is much better than the canned ones.
To cook the menudo you will need a large saucepan like the Excelsteel. The advantage of this saucepan is that it is very resistant because it is made of stainless steel and since its base is encapsulated it distributes better the heat.
