Callos ala Monserat

@ mirandablue

I planned of cooking callos on Sunday--I had been craving for it the past few days.  I had all the ingredients ready. Unfortunately, I woke up late on Sunday morning and my mother was already cooking for lunch while I was making coffee.  I am a firm believer of  "too may cooks spoil the broth" so I let her be. This is my mom's version of callos---and her name is Monserat.  She added the bacon but not the Chinese sausage which she claimed she didn't notice in the chiller.  I know she prefers Chorizo de Bilbao. My mother, a stickler to her own cooking style, didn't add white wine, either.  The result was still callos...it was missing the flavors that I craved for, but I couldn't complain, could I?:p

Callos is a stew of ox tripe, sausage and chickpeas.

I haven't tried callos. It looks delicious though. I'll make sure to try this next time, given the chance.
