1 pound beef tripe, cut into small squares

3 fresh cloves garlic, minced

3 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup red chile powder

2 teaspoons oregano leaves

1 tablespoons coarse black pepper

1 teaspoons cumin powder

1/2 small onion chopped

1 small can hominy, yellow or white


  1. Place beef tripe into a pot of boiling water, just enough to cover the tripe. Add garlic and onions and salt. Cover and cook for about 1 hour. When tripe is tender add the remaining ingredients including the hominy and cook about 15 or 20 minutes longer. Add more salt if needed. This is a spicy dish and it goes well with cilantro and a twist of lime. Corn tortillas are a good compliment.
