Filippino!

Posted on

Whenever we have Filipino food, Brad is the one who has to make it because he is the expert on all things the Philippines. I wanted to surprise him and make my own version of the Filipino classics: menudo.

I cheated a little bit, okay a lot-a-bit, and used Mama Sita’s Menudo/Afritada mix because it was naturally gluten free and Mama Sita’s mixes are known to be on the healthier side of packaged seasoning mixes. It turned out really good, and Brad was impressed with my skills.

Menudo

  • 2 large potatoes, chopped
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 pkg Mama Sita’s Menudo/Afritada mix
  • 2 c of rice
In a large pan or wok, boil the chicken and potatoes. Add green peppers half way through the boiling. Follow Mama Sita’s packet and let the powder disintegrate in a cup on the side. Once cooked, shred the chicken and drain excess water. Add disintegrated sauce to the potatoes, peppers and chicken, let simmer. Serve over rice.
