Guinness World Record Holder

National

Menudo Month


Juanita’s understands that Menudo has a special place in the food culture of Mexican cuisine. Since 1950, Juanita’s has prepared authentic ready-to-eat menudo for everyday meals, breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and for special celebrations and Mexican holidays too. 

To celebrate the unique role of Menudo in the Mexican experience, Juanita’s is celebrating National Menudo Month in January.

On January, join us celebrating a uniquely Mexican food tradition during

National Menudo Month!

Menudo is a traditional soup made with beef tripe, bone stock, hominy, chiles, and other seasonings -a favorite at Mexican family gatherings and special celebrations.

The secret to delicious menudo is quality ingredients, and the time it takes to prepare it – in order to be soft and tender, tripe needs to be cooked for up to 10 hours! That’s why menudo is the perfect dish for bringing generations together and for passing down traditions.

HOW TO OBSERVE

To be a part of the first National Menudo Month, make a delicious pot of menudo and use #NationalMenudoMonth to share pictures on social media of your family enjoying menudo!

On Sunday, January 28, 2018, help Juanita’s Foods and The International Culinary Schools at The Art Institutes® make history while attempting a new Guinness World Record® for the Largest Menudo Soup! Join the festivities by following JuanitasFoods on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and, if you’re in Southern California, make your way to Juanita’s in Wilmington, California and get your fill of free menudo.

 

Our Guinness World Record Event on January 28th will be open to consumers from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm. Make sure to arrive early so you can enjoy free parking on site while there are available spaces.

There will be free food with Juanita’s products, free face painting for the kids and free entertainment with headliner artist Jonatan Sanchez.

BECAUSE WE ARE MAKING THE LARGEST MENUDO SOUP, YOU CAN EAT MENUDO AT THE EVENT AND MAYBE THERE WILL BE MENUDO TO TAKE HOME TOO — FOR AS LONG AS THE SUPPLY OF SOUP IN THE LARGE KETTLE LAST.

Pass on those Mexican culinary traditions. Make a delicious kettle of Menudo and use #NationalMenudoMonth to share on social media.
