Oxtail Menudo (Menudo Sulipeña)

Oxtail menudo is a Spanish dish called “Menudo Sulipeña”. Most dishes we have now have Spanish influence and this is one of them. What very interesting is the ingredients are readily available locally and you don’t need to find a Spanish specialty shop to buy the ingredients.
