Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Menudo vs Pozole Have you ever tried Menudo? If your family is from northern Mexico you probably have tried Menudo. You know, hominy, with the lining of a cows stomach, mixed with chile rojo , some oregano and cebolla? Usually with a bolillo or francesito on the side (white bread) Looks good right?

Close up:

BUT, I just found out of this other way to eat hominy called pozole. It looks like this:

This is so weird to me because I have never seen this WHITE soup in my life. Recently, my sister and I were invited to try this pozole and it was an interesting experience. It had chicken, hominy, cabbage, a special salsa, radishes and you can add avocado on top. WEIRD!! Well, I don’t know maybe it may be yummy to you. So vote, what do you like best Menudo or Pozole? If you have never tried either or your family is from another country, what’s an equivalent dish to this spicy tripe soup? Tell me I really want to know what you like, my vote is on Menudo :]

I love pozole. The meat is better than the tripe from menudo. But, I like the red kind. The white one is just weird. My family is from Jalisco, Mexico and they always make it for special occasions. I like it with cabbage, tomatoes and aguacate. Yummy, muy delicioso.

Pozole! The meat is way better (for when I ate meat!)

It's a lot more popular in California I think.
