Tacos de Tripa (Tripe Tacos)

Mexican "Street Stall" style tacos. Warm tortillas with a crispy, spicy

Recipe By: Pete & Peggy Romfh
Serving Size: 8
Cuisine: Mexican
Main Ingredient: Tripe
Categories: Low Sugar, Diabetic, Atkins-Friendly, Low Carb, Fry, Simple -

-= Ingredients =-
1 pound Tripe ; - beef or pork
1 large Onion ; - Finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt ; - to taste
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1/2 cup Salsa ; - medium or hot (to taste)
4 large Low Carb tortillas ; - cut in 1/2
1 cup Cabbage ; - finely shredded
1/4 cup Radishes ; - finely sliced
1/4 cup Cilantro ; - for garnish

-= Instructions =-
Thoroughly clean and rinse the tripe. Chop it into small (app 3/8 inch)
pieces and drop it into boiling water. Allow this to simmer for 20 - 30
minutes while you assemble and prep the other ingredients. When the tripe is
quite tender drain it and allow it to dry a bin on some paper towels. Heat
one tablespoon of oil in a frying pan then add the tripe, allowing it to
brown a bit then turning down the heat a bit and let it continue cooking
until it starts to get crispy. Reduce the heat to low and keep warm.

In another pan sauté the onions in a tablespoon of oil until they are
softened and starting to brown. Then add 1/2 of the salsa and the crispy
tripe. Adjust the seasoning with salt and additional salsa as needed.

Turn each 1/2 tortilla into a cone shape and spoon in some of the meat-onion
mixture. Top with some cabbage, radish slices, and cilantro.

Serve hot. This tastes a LOT better hot than cold (or even warm).

Each (1/2 tortilla) serving contains an estimated:
Cals: 139, FatCals: 65, TotFat: 7g
SatFat: 1g, PolyFat: 2g, MonoFat 4g
