  1. Menudo – Mexican Hangover Soup with Tripe and Turkey Recipe

    July 9, 2018 by Varga László

    Ingredients (8-10 servings):

    • 1.5 kg tripe precooked
    • 1.5 kg turkey wings
    • 3 medium onions
    • 3-4 bay leafs
    • 1 bulb of garlic
    • 3 green chili peppers
    • 3 celery stalks
    • 200 g tomato puree
    • 1 tablespoon oregano
    • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
    • 2 limes
    • 1 kg of oyster mushrooms
    • 1 medium red onion for garnishing
    • a bunch of parsley or coriander leaves for garnishing
    • salt and pepper to taste.

    Preparation method:

    1. Wash the tripe in 1-2 bowls of fresh water.
    2. Chop the onions. Or even if you just clean them, they will dissolve during the hours of boiling.
    3. Disjoint the turkey wings.
    4. Clean the garlic cloves.
    5. Add the tripe to a large cooking pot ( I used an open fire kettle, because I cooked outside). Fill with enough water to cover it . Start cooking.
    6. Add the turkey pieces, onion, garlic and bay leafs.
    7. Grille the green chili peppers, turning them a few times, until a bit charred on all their sides.
    8. Chop the grilled chili peppers.
    9. Cut the celery stalks in smaller pieces to fit the pot and add to the soup.
    10. Season with the sweet and hot paprika.
    11. Add the tomato puree and season with the oregano and some extra paprika if needed. 
    12. Slice roughly the mushrooms to have sort of a similar shape with the tripe.
    13. When the tripe and turkey has cooked for about 90 minutes, add the chopped mushrooms to the kettle with the soup and continue to cook until the mushrooms are cooked, about another 30 minutes.
    14. Slice thinly the red onions.
    15. Chop the parsley.
    16. Cut the remaining lime into wedges.
    17. When the soup is cooked, serve while hot in soup bowls garnished with some chopped parsley (coriander/cilantro if you like it, but I do not 🙂 ), some slices of red onion and a wedge of lime.
