The simple and unassuming “mongo guisado” is a favorite Filipino household dish due to its richness in nutrients and inexpensive ingredients. This favorite Filipino dish is given a make-over with a lot of nutritious spinach leaves (the kids love this) and garnished with a lot of crispy, crackling “chicharon” bits.



Makes: 6 serving
Preparation time: 10 mins + 4 hours soaking
Cooking time: 30-40 mins

Mongo Guisado Cooking Instructions
