Easy white menudo recipe

The Hubster was in charge of Christmas Day lunch and he decided to make his mom’s delicious white menudo. The ingredients are simple – easily found at your local Mexican market. Best of all, you can throw everything together in under 30 minutes. A few quick tips – ask the butcher to chop the trip into bite size pieces and the beef foot into chunks. It’ll cut down the prep time even more. And if you want to make menudo rojo (red menudo) instead of leaving it white, follow the steps we did in this pozole rojo recipe.

    Can you make this recipe for only 4 people. And how much would l have cut down on? Thank you for your time.

      You could… I would probably divide the ingredients by 4. The recipe we did fed a lot of people. Also, there are smaller cans of hominy so you don’t have to buy the big one.
