Tripe is protein.: Menudo, of course, is a soup that contains tripe, which is a source of protein. You can have it, as it probably doesn't have that much protein in general, as opposed to eating a steak or large piece of fish. So I would think that having menudo on occasion would be fine with a history of gout. You don't have to avoid protein, just limit overall.

Menudo and gout: You should be ok, but you should always monitor how you feel after eating certain foods to be sure they are not a trigger for you. Remember, the key with gout is moderation (especially those foods that you should avoid).
