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.
