    Transylmania's Note:

    This is a Cape Verdean classic. I grew up in an area with a large Cape Verdean population and this was a common quick, easy, and traditional dinner at several of my friends' houses. For best results use Portuguese or Cape Verdean canned tuna in oil.

      I really loved this one! Tuna and rice is very basic to me as my dad made a tuna and rice dish from as far back as I can remember. This one tops my dad's. The addition of the cumin, hot pepper and the green pepper is marvelous. It's exactly the type of dish I like best these days. Something simple and solid that can be augmented by whatever you are in the mood for. I used brown rice (added added bit more water) and 1/2 a tsp of hot pepper flakes. The recipe makes generous servings. DH and I had lunch and there is a lot left for tomorrows dinner. Simple, direct and healthy as well as very tasty. This is destined to become a staple in this house.
