I mentioned before that ampalaya is my favorite vegetable. I just love how it’s easy to cook dishes for it. Plus, all the attempts that I made with ampalaya turned out to be successful. So I tried another one today which is Ampalaya Guisado. And this might be my favorite among it all!
This Ampalaya Guisado is probably the most flavorful ampalaya dish I have cooked so far. I love how filling this dish is! I was planning to eat this for 2 days coupled with another dish. But since this Ampalaya Guisado tasted so good, I ended up splitting it to 3 meals on the same day! I was totally satisfied and happy!
