I swear! This one tastes so good. It's simple and easy cos you will only need the Mama Sita's Afritada Mix which has already the goodness of tomatoes, garlic and onions serve as a base for both Menudo and Afritada. So you don't need tomatoe paste or tomato sauce with this. I added carrots and 1/2 water aside from the original recipe at the back of the pack.
1 pouch Mama Sita's Meat Stew Mix (Menudo/Afritada)
1 cup potatoes, cubed
1 lb chicken (cut into serving pcs)
2 pcs bell pepper, cubed
1/2 cup green peas
1 cup carrots, cubed or whole baby carrots
1 cup water
2 tbsp cooking oil
*Fry potatoes in hot oil and set aside. In the same pan, stir-fry meat until golden brown. Add fried potatoes, then rest of the ingredients. Simmer for 2 mins or til heated through. You may also cook the chicken more to your desired tenderness. Serve hot.
Tip: What I did after i stir-fried the chicken: I transferred it to another clean pan, leaving the grease on the other pan. Making the dish not too oily! I also added the peas last cos I used the one in a can. This Mama Sita's Mix can also be used for Menudo. You can also cook afritada without Mama Sita's Recipe. Check it out!
