"The authentic version uses tripe. I have never cared for tripe, myself, and I have always substituted chicken, beef, turkey, sausage or even ham instead." — MARBALET

I don't usually make comments about others recipes but I must about this one. This is the best Pepper Pot I have ever had, did add more red pepper about double called for, some salt 1 tsp and instead of tripe used smoked sausage. Everyone loved it!!!
My grandmother used to make pepper pot soup and I loved it. I went searching for a recipe, found this one and made it exactly as it was. I even used tripe. Well, it was a lot of work and when it was done it wasn't very good at all. Very disappointing!
I love Pepper Pot Soup and it just doesn't get better than this!!!!
I don't eat tripe but my husband loves it. I made this for him for dinner he ate three bowls and told me that it was better then anyone in his family had made. I figure he's italian he should know. Thanks
Wow! I have memories of my Granny's kitchen. This soup is so very authentic. I simmered the tripe 3.5 vs. 2 hours and cut the pieces smaller. I also used fresh serrano peppers vs. the crushed red pepper.
This is a really great recipe. My father and his girlfriend are horrible food snobs. I gave them some of this soup for dinner on a chilly night. When they asked for the recipe, I knew I'd hit gold! Thank you! I used chicken and sweet chicken sauage instead of the tripe...just can't do tripe. Enjoy!!
Excellent....Ol' Bill Fance could not pull the trigger on the tripe, using sausage instead. Also skipped the roux as Ol' Bill prefers a thinning soup and was still very tasty. Will definately make again.
This is an excellent recipe. Somewhat labor intensive, but worth the effort. I'd give it 5 stars except for my taste bud's linguring memories of my mother's slightly different pepper pot recipe.
