How to make it

  • This preparation needs to be done outside as the boiling process doesn't smell good at all. You don't want that smell in your house. Or, you could just open a window and turn on the overhead vent of your stove.
  • Boil the Tripas by themselves in some salted water for 15 minutes.
  • While the Tripas are boiling, chop the cilantro and onion and set aside.
  • After boiling the Tripas for 15 minutes, drain and rinse.
  • Heat up your grill and in a Disco add about 1/4 cup of Canola Oil. (A Disco is sort of a Mexican can use a regular Wok also.)
  • Place the drained Tripas with the Chile flakes, salt and pepper and stir-fry until crispy.
  • Chop the Tripas up into bite-size peices and serve with Corn Tortillas with a topping of Chopped Cilantro, Diced onion, and a squeeze of Fresh Lime Juice.

    How I love tripas. There is a little taco stand down the road and one of the cooks got me to try tripas years ago and I have been hooked since. Today will be my first try at cooking it. Thanks for the recipe.

    I have been cooking tripas for a long time,it usually takes me 4 hours for them to be ready. 3 and a half hours to boil in the disco and 30 minutes to fry them in oil. You should try to cook them longer and in between boiling time you need to clean them. If you liked them before you will love them now.

    Tripe is a dish Italians eat qute a bit especially in the poorer regions, I make it with a light marinara sauce (just boil the trippa) and a lot of garlic and fresh warm crusty bread. I agree with the preparation...either outside or at someone's house you don't like too much. TY for post will try this way.
