  1. I found Old El Paso refried beans online with Lazada. Also, L has found them at Gasaino in Davao city. I am not sure if mine qualifies as "good," but I do make some mean Tex-Mex 'rittos here... Stop by for a couple of them and a "cold one" or two...!

  5. Chili Verde Recipe All the ingredients should be available in Philippines. Two or three pounds pork butt cubed, salt pepper fry until brown only. Pork loin is a healthy substitute. A cup or more canned fire roasted Hatch Chili peppers mild. Or sub old El Paso canned green chili peppers. I've seen Old El Paso products in Cebu if you can get the Hatch its a step up! At least 24 oz can/jar of mild Salsa Verdi Chop one large onion with some fresh Jalapeños (seeded) to taste. Fry then add five or six mashed garlic cloves for the last 60 seconds. At least a pound of boiled waxy skinned potatoes cubed. More is better up to your taste we like potatoes. I put this in about 30 minutes before serving. 2 teaspoon oregano 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander Dried chili flakes or your favorite hot sauce to taste. Dump into slow cooker set at HIGH three hours of pork loin five or more for pork butt. Some salt and pepper to taste. Canned Jalapeño on the side and a cold one.

  6. That's another thing I have not found. A large enough green pepper to put the Jack Cheese in. Sure smaller local peppers I can find. I ordered the hatch chili pepper seeds from Lazada but I haven't got them to grow yet. Soil not sandy enough, too much humidity? One of these days I'll get it to grow. My favorite recipe for chili rellenos is large green chilis roasted and remove hard skin. Slice open and put in jack cheese, then roll in egg with flour coating then back. The best to deep fry the chili/egg/cheese till crispy then serve hot(authentic way). I'll have to check Lazada for refried beans to make my classic beef burittos with sour cream and cheese! yummy!

  7. Most of these simpletons are brainwashed with the idea that the financial system is "corrupt" and "unfair" towards people outside their elite circles. That's how they played hundred of thousands of them touting "the cryptocurrency revolution", as a tool of financial liberation that would unleash returns and prosperity never seen before. The irony of these companies who promised 50% returns in a year by investing in the crypto markets is that, had they really invested in specific crypto markets (e.g. Ethereum) in the past 2 or 3 years, they would have been able to make enough money to fulfil those promises, and still keep plenty of profits for themselves!

  8. "Tom" atillo salsa, Old? Hahahaha!!! Thanks for the thought and I will have to try this! At least the "cold one" part of the equation is much easier now than before...

  11. I received an email back. Because I am a foreigner they will only send me an application if I first send them a copy of my ACR card and passport with visa. I am not willing to do that just for the sake of researching the company's product.

  12. Is there really anywhere around Cebu City where a radar gun is required? I refuse to drive there because of the traffic jams which reduces speed to a crawl where two vehicles plus 3 motorcycles creep along side by side in two lanes.

  13. Better to get a doctor to assess you if bed ridden then no airline will fly you out and immigration will just keep giving you extensions as it's more trouble than it's worth. Never do anything illegal, it's just not worth it and being a sceptic I'd be wondering how much of that 200k will end up in your partners pocket.

  14. My apologies but I've seen it too many times that I suppose I have become a bit hardened to what can go on. I'm not one for sugar coating things and prefer people being blunt than saying things to appease me. I hope you get things sorted but I'd email or message immigration as I'm sure they will be understanding. I have a friend with a degenerative spine condition who can't fly and his doctor assured him she would issue a not fit to fly certificate.

  18. Rod, I may try cooking Chili Rellenos with fresh peppers next week. It will be my first time but with YouTUbe what can go wrong? The Old El Paso canned peppers are small but would work if you can find them over there. Or better yet as Tom suggested there must be some mild med-large fresh local peppers in the market.

  19. The Herdez salsa is hard to find here in Davao. the rest is mostly available. I love Mexican dishes! Thanks for the recipe!

  20. I think the (usual) total lack of 'visual observation', mirror use, etc, plus weaving in and out of traffic on both roads and sidewalks, are a more likely cause of accidents than speed.

  21. I would report it as its a scam and illegal. Are you working, no. Do you have a company sponsoring you, no. If you got a stamp there's a good chance one day it will bite you on the backside

  22. A few of those schemes are going around here. Targeting poor and not so poor people who may not have access to the internet or they just have had no education or experience outside of their Purok. In the beggining some people get paid out so spread the word and that is how these schemes get away with it. Don`t forget a lot of expats got caught with something similar maybe 8 years ago in Cebu.

  24. Welcome to the forum Dragonfly. Many, perhaps most, people who reach those ages have some kind of expensive medical issues when the get into the late 70s and 80s. About the only exceptions are those who drop suddenly with a major heart attack. Medical insurance rates reflect those average medical costs and of course a profit for the corporation as well. As Geoff wrote, you can try to set aside funds so as to be self ensured. Another option might be to have a stand by plan and funds to return to the USA where you would have Medicare.

  25. For what they want for seniors health insurance in the Philippines it might be easier to put cash in a bank account and just get Phil Health. Then if (when) something goes wrong draw down on it. YMMV of course.

  26. East to make! https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/215240/homemade-sour-cream/ Just use milk/cream ,vinegar or lemon juice. Mix, let set out 24 hours, then refrigerate. I make it all the time. I prefer lemon juice and cream. Lemon juice gives a better tang to the sour cream!
