 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6      pounds        tripe -- cut in 1-inch pieces
    1      gallon        water
    2      medium        onions -- chopped
    2      cloves        garlic
    1      tablespoon    salt
      1/2  teaspoon      black pepper
    2                    ancho chiles
    1      tablespoon    fresh cilantro leaves
    7      cups          hominy, yellow -- cooked
                         lime wedges -- for garnish
      For starters, you must place the tripe, water, onions, garlic,
 salt, and pepper in a large kettle and let it simmer over low heat for
 about two hours, skimming fat as necessary. Next, you must toast the
 chiles well. Then you slit them open and remove the seeds and veins. You
 must grind them until they are very fine and then you add them to the
 kettle. Continuing, you can add the cilantro and let it simmer for about
 two hours. At last, you can add the hominy and cook for another thirty
 minutes. Finally, it is a good idea to serve with lime wedges. This
 recipe will serve from ten to about twelve people

             For some time now, my favorite Mexican food has been Menudo.
 The first time I was introduced to it, was at my grandmother’s house.
 She lives in Oaxaca, Mexico.
             My parents don't really like to go visit my grandmother,
 because she tends to be very irritable. But when my parents actually
 decide to go for a visit, we really have a good time.
             My quinceanera was very near and my grandmother decided it
 was about time that I learned how to cook. Of course, my grandmother
 also decided that she was the one who was to teach me all I needed to
 know. I felt like that was a very good idea since she is a very good
             She took me to the kitchen and told me that the first thing
 I was to be taught was how to make my grandfather’s favorite food
