Bopis (bópiz in Spanish) is a piquant Philippine dish of pork or beef lungs and heart sautéed in tomatoes, chilies and onions.[1]

This spicy Filipino dish has Spanish origins, but the meaning in its original language and even region of origin are lost.

Preparation[edit]

It is sauteed and stir-fried (until crispy) with finely-chopped pig innards and cooked in onion, tomato, garlic, and pepper.[2]

Recipes for bopis may differ from region to region and family to family, with regards to ingredients, spices and flavoring.

Classified as pulutan in Philippine cuisine,[3] bopis is served with alcoholic beverages or may be taken as a viand with steamed rice.
