1-2 Boxes of Regular Saltine Crackers
1-2 Large Can of Jalapeños
1 Medium Can of Mixed Veggies
1 Tomato
1/2 Onion
2 Lbs of Longaniza



  1. Mash crackers into crumbs.
  2. Slice up the tomato and onion.
  3. Slice your Longaniza into pieces.
  4. Heat up a large pot with Manteca.
  5. Add Longaniza to the pot and fry it.
  6. Once Longaniza is fried, add tomato, onion and cook together.
  7. Drain out half the water from the veggie cans, then pour veggie can into pot and let it come to a boil.
  8. After it’s cooked for about 3-4 minutes, start adding cracker crumbs into pot a little at a time and mix as you add it.
  9. Once it’s as thick as you want it, add the jalapeño juice. (If you want it to be spicier, add more than a can.)
  10. Mix well.  YOU ARE DONE!!!

Recipe is enough for 8-10 people.
