How to cook Tuna Caldereta
Tuna Caldereta Recipe – When the enhanced community quarantine was announced, most of us rushed to the grocery stores and supermarkets to buy noodles and canned goods. Almost all homes are now stocked with various canned goods since it’s challenging to go to the market to buy meat.
