You should totally make these for Superbowl. Or, any party, actually.
Easy, healthy, and perfectly bite sized.
A little sneak peak of one of my favorite recipes from The Simply Real Health Cookbook: Easy Real Food Recipes for a Healthy Life, Made Simple, out March 6th. If you haven’t ordered your copy yet, you should!
I probably shouldn’t say this on the blog, but if you want one, there is a limited number of them and over 1,000 have been purchased so far, and they are going quick! I’d rather have you be safe than sorry for this one. Trust me. I know it’s mine, but it’s just good.
Sesame Tuna-Stuffed Mini Peppers
Makes approximately 5 servings
Notes: Don’t like tuna? Use cooked shredded chicken instead, or ground turkey or beef cooked with a bit of onion, cumin and garlic powder instead. Or, try any of these versions baked at 350 for 15-20 minutes. A sprinkle of cheese on top is optional! Peppers can be stuffed ahead and refrigerated for up to 2 days.
2 cans wild tuna in water
5 assorted mini peppers
2-3 stalks celery, chopped
olive oil, lots
generous sprinkle of pepper and sesame seeds
Slice mini peppers in half, removing seeds and membranes. In a separate bowl, add drained tuna, chopped celery, pepper and lots of olive oil. Mash together well. Scoop into pepper halves and sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds to serve.
