Easy Recipes: Spicy tuyo pasta

Do you like spicy food? I do. I think it’s obvious because I’m featuring Spicy Tuyo Pasta in this blog.

I don’t know why I love spicy, I just do. I always try to include red chili in all my sauces, and before I had children, I would always cook spicy Sinigang.

I use a lot of hot sauce on my pizza and I don’t use regular catsup. I preferred Maggi Chili sauce, which disappeared from the supermarket shelves for reasons unknown to spicy-loving humanity! I found a good enough substitute in Silver Swan’s extra spicy chili sauce, but I sure do hope that my favorite brand of chili sauce would make a comeback.


One of my friends, Donna, posted a picture of her spicy pasta dish on Facebook weeks ago and it looked so good, I immediately messaged her to ask for the recipe.

Just like most of the recipes I’ve shared here, this one is pretty much easy to make. Just a warning: If you’re following this recipe to a tee, it will be too spicy for children. 

Here’s what you will need:



350 grams Spaghetti pasta
2 bulbs of garlic, chopped
6-8 pieces of green chili
2 jars of Bebeng’s Kitchen Gourmet tuyo
Olive oil

How to cook:

1. Cook pasta as instructed on the package, set aside.
2. Heat pan in low fire before pouring in a generous amount of olive oil. Don’t wait too long before doing the next step!
3. Put in the chopped garlic and the green chili. Keep stirring until the garlic is moderately brown.

4. Mix in Bebeng’s Kitchen Gourmet tuyo. Do not include the liquid content.



5. Mix constantly. It is better that the fish is broken down into tinier pieces.
6. Mix in the pasta.

7. Serve!

Bebeng’s Kitchen Savory Sidekicks

Bebeng’s Kitchen has recently introduced its ‘Savory Sidekick’ products. The list of sidekicks include Garlic and Chili, Gourmet tuyo, Atchara, and Sweet Bagoong Alamang.

All these products are home-made and created without any additives nor preservatives.

I’ve tried the Atchara, which does not last very long on our table, it’s so good, I forget my diet!


And I’ve tried Gourmet tuyo, and as you can see, I’m obviously sold out! You can check out Mom on Duty’s Pork Binagoongan recipe using Bebeng’s Kitchen Sweet Bagoong Alamang.

Bebeng’s kitchen is also known for pastries and cookies. I once posted about their Choco Chip Banana Muffins and I’m about to order another batch of chocolate chip oat cookies.

IMG_4853I ordered one pack, along with the Atchara and Gourmet tuyo, but it was gone, 60 seconds after Jay brought it in.

Check out Bebeng’s Kitchen on Facebook! It’s one of those guilty pleasures you will forget being guilty about.

Special thanks to my friend, Donna Mendiola-Gaddi, for sharing her tuyo pasta recipe with me!

  1. I didn’t used to eat a lot of spicy food but since my hubby is a fanatic, I’ve since learned to appreciate it. 🙂 He’s going to love this recipe! I haven’t tried any of Denise’ Bebeng’s Kitchen goodies yet but I’ve been hearing lots of good stuff about them. I guess I have to order now so I can try them for myself.

  2. I’m not a fan of spicy dishes but am definitely a pasta lover. I am tempted to try this recipe without the green chili.
    Also, the Bebeng Kitchen Gourmet Tuyo is not available in Cebu (not that I know..) so I may opt to use sardines.
    Just wondering if it still taste yummy 🙂
    Thanks for the recipe.

  3. Bebeng’s Kitchen is a new favorite for me!!! i haven’t tried the spicy tuyo, i will give this recipe a try and will use Bebeng’s Kitchen as well…you know naman I believe you when you recommend something! hehehehe

  4. Yay! Tuyo! I love tuyo. Dati I don’t eat it. But when I got the chance and lakas ng loob to taste it, hay. I regret not eating it before. But haven’t tried it on pasta. I must show this one to the hubby so he could it for me. Prinsesa lang. hahahaha.. I am no domestic goddes, sad to say. Buti I have a husband who loves to cook.

  5. I am not a fan of spicy things. Maybe just one green pepper than the 6-8 in the recipe will be enough for me. But that gourmet tuyo sounds interesting. I hope I can see that in the supermarket shelves soon.

  6. I love pasta, but I’ve never tried it with tuyo. I always go the traditional Italian route being a huge fan Tyler Florence. Marinara sauce from scratch and all that. Will try this recipe out one of these days and I’m definitely going to check out Bebeng’s Kitchen. It’s the first I’ve heard of this brand!

  7. I’m not a fan of spice (allergic to it) and not a fan of tuyo but my dad is! I’ll show this recipe to him so he can try it. He’s been wanting to learn cooking seafood kind of pastas. And this would be a great start.

  8. This sounds like an easy peasy recipe and quite inviting. Good that the paste is homemade without any preservatives.

  9. You really love your chili! I have low tolerance for spicy food. But I want to try this recipe without the chili or maybe one whole piece uncut. I am going to look for tuyo in a jar.

  10. I think it’s a good thing I just devoured a tuna pasta. But I’d really love to try this one soon. Hmmm, big pasta fan here. Yes, looks simple. Hopefully, I’d achieve the taste you’ve said here. Spicy is not a problem for me. And yeah, sorry to the kids. hehe

  11. It’s been a while since I’ve last made a spicy tuyo pasta! 😀 It’s quick and very easy to make, noh? Anyway, thanks for sharing this. Will have to shop for jarred tuyo soon so I can make this too. 🙂 Will look into Bebeng’s Kitchen too since it’s the first time I’ve come across this.
