- Wash chitlins in warm water to remove all grease and residue. When water runs clear they are clean.

1. Place the chitlins in a large pot. Do not add water. The chitlins will produce their own liquid.

2. Add salt and sliced onion.

3. Simmer slowly for 2 hours, removing water as it builds up. The mixture should remain watery but don't allow it to overflow.

4. Stir every half hour or so to prevent sticking.

5. After 2 hours cut chitlins into smaller pieces.

6. Continue cooking for 1 to 2 hours longer, or until completely tender.

7. Remove excess liquid.

8. Adjust seasoning, using salt, vinegar and hot sauce to your liking.

9. Serve with greens, potato salad and corn bread.

Step up your veggie dip, instead of using a conventional serving bowl, use a hollowed-out red cabbage. Not only does it add a colorful and eye-catching element to your table, but it also serves as a practical and edible vessel for your favorite dip.

Man, I never thought I'd tackle chitlins, but this recipe made it doable. Was a bit hesitant about the cleaning part, but it all turned out great in the end.

Could use a bit more info on the 'removing water' step, but all in all, it's solid.

I gave it a 4
