I know this sounds different, but they are very good. If you are trying to loose a few extra pounds they are great because they are low fat, low cal, and low carb. I ate these a lot when I lost all my weight. They are great for lunch, or you can even heat them up for dinner. Recipe is for one person.
- 1 red pepper
- 1 (6 ounce) canflaked solid white tuna (in water)
- 10 almonds
- 4 slices low-fat cheese
- 2 tablespoons salsa
- Slice red pepper in half and remove seeds.
- Fill each half with equal amounts of tuna.
- sprinkle almonds on top of tuna.
- Spread on salsa.
- Cover each pepper with 2 slices of cheese.
- You can also heat them up in the microwave until they are warm.
Another simple and terrific recipe. Can't improve on this one. 27* recipe, Purdy Good Cook.
I really was not sure whether I was going to like this or not, but truth is...this is wonderful. A delightful healthy lunch. I zapped in microwave just for 45 seconds and it turned out perfect.
So easy and economical if you can find the red bell peppers on sale. Here's a variation that worked well too: I skipped the nuts, mixed in a tablespoon of sour cream with the salsa and used imitation crab when I had no tuna. I zap the peppers in the microwave for three minutes because I like them slightly wilted rather than cold and crisp. Great for lunch, portable and filling.
