Recipe by Lovin my girl

I actually just made this recipe on Sunday the 15th--with my husband’s help since he is from Nigeria and this is a favorite among his family. You can use any kind of meat combinations you prefer. I used stew meat and chicken thighs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Use a stew pot and boil enough water to cover all the meat, onions, vegetable oil and salt.
  2. Boil until tender/almost done.
  3. Meanwhile, puree together tomatoes, garlic, tomatoes paste, jalapeno, red pepper, and fresh herbs.
  4. When meat is ready, drain off all but about 1 1/2 cups of broth.
  5. Add in the puree mix; cover and stew for about an hour. Approximately 15 minutes before done add in fresh cut spinach.
  6. Serve with your choice of rice.
