Thousands flock to this free foodie favorite event every year. The Taste of Menudo & Pozole food festival is a celebration of two authentic dishes from some of the region’s top culinary masters. Food vendors and local restaurants will be on hand throughout the festival this Sunday November 15th, treating guests to their own spicy spin on the two classic dishes. \rAttendees can sample other foods, take home some canned offerings or enter the festival’s free raffle to win a turkey for the holidays. A beer and wine garden will also be on hand, along with demonstrations, cookbooks on how to make the most of your home recipes, and promotions for a number of commercial products.\rMenudo is a traditional Mexican soup, prepared with beef tripe, hominy and chili.
