Dinuguan is a Filipino stew distinguished for having pig’s blood as a base. The final dish is black in color.
Other iconic ingredients of dinuguan are offal (hearts, liver, kidney, pig’s ears, etc.), vinegar, garlic and onions.
To add color to the blackness of the soup, a green chili is often added on top as garnishing. It is served with white rice.
You can also enjoy dinuguan with puto, the so-called Filipino rice muffins.
