quick easy no "meat" version
I make a no tripe version. works well when I want the "menudo" experience without all the fuss.
I take a large can of golden Hominy, put into a pot, add 2 cups water, add a dried bay leaf, a pinch of oregano, 1/2 clove of garlic crushed, 2 pinched of red pepper flake, 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin and 2 tablespoons of red chili powder.
I simmer till the hominy takes on color. and broth slighly thickens.
I serve a bowl with fresh diced onion and a squeeze of lemon juce...a warm corn tortiila with a smear of smashed avocado.
I dont miss the tripe or the mess. Cooking time30 min.
