Preparation:

1. Boil tripe in enough water for 5 minutes to remove the scum. Drain and discard the broth.
2. Boil again in 5 cups water with peppercorn, salt, and laurel for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until tender. Drain. Reserve broth.
3. Sauté garlic, onion, tripe, chorizo, and carrot in olive oil for 3 minutes. Add DEL MONTE Original Style Tomato Sauce, 1 1/2 to 2 cups broth and remaining ingredients except cheese.
4. Bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cheese. Allow to simmer until cheese is incorporated. 

Chef’s Tip:

Boiling the tripe for the first time is not meant to cook the tripe. It is meant to blanch the meat and remove any impurities and unpleasant smell from the tripe.
