How to make Menudo Rojo:
In a large pot, bring 1 gallon water to a boil.

Periodically skim off fat with a spoon. Drain water, reduce heat, and pour in a fresh gallon of water.
Continue to simmer tripe for 2 hours; drain.
Pour remaining 1 gallon water into the pot with tripe, and bring to a boil.
Stir in garlic and 1 white onion. Season with salt, pepper, oregano, and red pepper.
Reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour.
Preheat the broiler.
Arrange the de arbol chile peppers on a baking sheet, and broil about 2 minutes, just until they begin to scorch.
Remove from heat, slit lengthwise, and remove seeds.
In a blender or food processor, blend the de arbol chile peppers and japones chile peppers until very finely chopped.
Mix into the pot, and continue cooking 2 hours over low heat.
Mix the hominy into the pot. Continue cooking 1 hour. Serve with remaining onion, cilantro, and lime juice.
Menudo Rojo is ready.
