Callos or ox tripe stew is a Filipino-Spanish dish made from ox tripe and veal shanks (ox feet). The tripe and shanks are boiled and simmered until the texture becomes extra tender; this makes eating this dish pleasurable. Different vegetables can also be added but the commonly used are carrots, chick peas (garbanzos), and bell pepper.
I like this dish because of its texture. The extra tender tripe and fat from the ox feet literally melts in your mouth while the luscious taste of chorizo and bacon lingers around – inviting you to try more. Though it looks and sounds enticing (which it does), moderation is still recommended because of the high fat and cholesterol content of this dish. It is good to enjoy food but it is better to enjoy life.
