Stuffed Red Bell Peppers With Tuna

"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."

    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.


I am a RN and I work in the operating room, which doesn't leave much time for cooking. But when I find the time I love to find recipes on Zaar and try them out. I have been happily married to a loving husband for 4 years, and he really enjoys all the interesting meal ideas that I find!!! I have no children yet, but hopefully in the near future. I enjoy cooking all types of meals, and love cooking for others!! I enjoy looking up new and exciting recipes from Zaar.
