INGREDIENTS

  • 4 Cans of white albacore tuna in water, drained
  • ½ small yellow onion, diced
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 3 Jalapeño peppers, diced
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 diced San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 4 tbsp mayo
  • 1 tbsp old bay seasoning
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 8 American or Provolone cheese slices
  • ¼ cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 4 Early Girl tomatoes hollowed out and tops cut off
  • 4 bell peppers cut lengthwise leaving the stem and hollowed out
  • 1 tsp of olive oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Sauté the yellow onion, red onion, jalapeños, minced garlic, the diced red and green bell peppers in 1 tsp of olive oil for 5 minutes to soften a little. You can skip this step if you prefer these items to be crunchier in your tuna.
  • Cut 4 bell peppers lengthwise leaving the stem on to hold the mixture in. Remove insides/seeds from bell peppers. Cut the tops off of the Early Girl tomatoes and hollow out the tomatoes being careful not to pierce through the skin. Set aside.
  • Drain tuna and mix in a bowl with mayo, yellow onion, red onion, jalapeños, minced garlic, diced San Marzano tomatoes, the diced red & green bell peppers, old bay seasoning and black pepper.
  • Stuff all 4 of the Early Girl tomatoes and all 4 of the bell peppers with the tuna mixture. Sprinkle some panko crumbs on top of each tomato/pepper. Then bake for 15 minutes. Put a slice of American or provolone cheese on top of each tomato/pepper and bake for another 5 mins until melted. Remove from oven and cool 5 mins.

Enjoy!
