Menudo Photos: Mexican Soup

Menudo is a spicy Mexican beef scar soup that is cooked in a small amount of liquid with a generous portion of red pepper and other spices. It usually takes several hours to prepare menudo, and it is traditionally prepared for large holidays and weddings, or rather, for the day after the holiday, when this invigorating stew is served as an effective remedy for a hangover. Menudo is poured into deep bowls and eaten with corn tortillas. You can sprinkle with lime juice, sprinkle with fresh cilantro or add salsa. This recipe is provided by the Mexican restaurant of San Antonio.
