  1. Rinse beef tripe under cold running water. Using kitchen shears or a knife, cut tripe into small bite-size pieces
  2. In a stockpot, combine tripe, garlic cloves, cilantro sprigs, green onions, and salt. Add water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours until tripe is tender and reaches an internal temperature of 160°F. Remove tripe and 6 cups cooking stock and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add red onion, white onion, bell pepper, and chopped garlic and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 6 cups reserved cooking stock, peanut butter, achiote paste, cumin, and oregano to stockpot and stir over medium-high heat until completely blended and stock is simmering. Add potatoes and reserved cooked tripe. Simmer to 15 minutes until potatoes are tender. Stir in chopped cilantro and season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  4. Serve ladled into bowls with scoops of white rice and diced avocado. Serve with tostones and pickled red onions, if desired.
