Expert Tips

Want to save time? Used pickled jalapeños instead and omit baking and cheese.

Jalapeños are always a welcomed appetizer at any backyard get-together or tailgating party before a sports game. They are small enough to make in large batches to feed a hungry crowd and spicy enough to add that flavorful kick before a hearty meal has been served. This appetizer can be easily transported in aluminum foil and heated in an oven or a barbecue grill.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 In a small bowl, mix tuna, green onions, carrots, lemon juice, salt and pepper with a fork. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  • 3 Meanwhile, with a pairing knife, slice an opening in jalapeños lengthwise, large enough to be able to scoop out most seeds and veins.
  • 4 Scoop tuna mixture into each jalapeño and cover opening with slice of cheese. Arrange stuffed jalapeños on a baking sheet.
  • 5 Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until cheese begins to brown. Serve immediately.
