4 pounds cleaned tripe, cut into large chunks
½ cup white vinegar
1 Tbs salt, or more to taste
1 Tbs chili powder
½ Tbs cumin
½ Tbs oregano
½ Tbs garlic
¼ tsp cayenne (optional)
1-2 bay leaves
Water, as needed
If your tripe is not clean, boil tripe for 30-45 minutes in a large pot and then drain out the water.
Put tripe back into the pot and add in remaining ingredients.
Fill pot with double the amount of water as there is tripe.
Let ingredients come to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Check the consistency after 2 hours. If it is still chewy and you want it soft, continue cooking.
