I love quick lunch ideas…. Quick and healthy. I usually prefer a hot lunch but this is really good in a pinch. I love tuna and yellow peppers. I have had tuna stuffed peppers but I tend to be more of a finger food kind of gal. It just seems to work better. I can walk by my plate and grab something to stuff in my mouth while I work around the house. I love the yellow pepper “nachos” because they are like little scoops for the tuna…yum. So, hence the recipe- Tuna with yellow pepper nachos.
Here is what you will need:
1 package single serving tuna
1 yellow pepper
1 stalk celery
2 teaspoons mayonnaise (I generally use mayo with olive oil)
1 tablespoon spicy mustard
1 tablespoon onion
Put tuna in a bowl. Mix with the wet ingredients- mayo and mustard. Chop the celery and the onion and mix with tuna and wet ingredients.
Don’t mind my cutting board. I use that thing A LOT! It is beat up for sure!
Next, cut the pepper into cubes big enough to scoop.
Do everything you can so your 4 year old doesn’t steal every last one of your peppers. I swear half of mine were gone before I could eat.
Then simply put it on a plate and scoop up the tuna with the peppers. I ate mine with a small salad and some blackberries. Delicious and healthy. If you aren’t a fan of yellow peppers, you can certainly use any pepper you like or substitute a lettuce wrap or make a cucumber boat. Just a thought.
