For office workers out there, 7-Eleven Hottaulam meals are a godsend. Reheated in 30 seconds, you get a full meal with free rice, that are substantial enough to fuel your whole work day. They’re affordable, and there are so many variants to choose from, like a whole quarter of Chicken BBQ, or even traditional Pork Laing.
Even if you’re used to eating them at your work desk, these ready-to-eat meals would also make for easy dishes to throw together at home, in place of regular canned goods or other frozen food available in grocery stores. When access to food can be limited, 7-Eleven Hottaulam meals are a very accessible, and delicious, alternative. With this recipe, we turned their sweet-spicy Rico’s Lechon Binagoongan into a fried rice that can feed more than two.
