A party is not complete without a bowl of this menudo recipe of spicy beef tripe and corn soup. Made with a base of dried red chili peppers in northern Mexico or in a clear broth known as menudo blanco in the states of Sonora and Sinaloa, this dish brings families together. This comfort delicacy is traditionally served in just about every Mexican celebration including weddings, quinceañera parties, baptisms and even New Year’s. If you don’t see this dish on the reception menu, then you will find it as the main course at the tornaboda or post-reception get-together. A bowl of hot menudo sure satisfies and it is believed to be invigorating after an evening of celebration.
