When I organize a get-together with family or friends, I always like to have some appetizers and snacks ready to offer my guests before a meal. I don't like complicated preparations, so I usually opt for a recipe that's easy and reasonable in price.

*To make this sauce, combine 8 boiled tomatillos with 1 cup water from the pot, 1 garlic clove and 1 chicken bouillon cube; just purée and your sauce is ready.

Directions

  • 1 Open the can of jalapeños in vinegar and remove the peppers. For each pepper, cut off the top (stem side) then remove the seeds and veins. When finished, set the cleaned peppers to the side.
  • 2 Next, open the tuna and drain off the water. In a bowl, break up the sections of tuna with a fork and dress with olive oil, the reserved vinegar (from the can of jalapeños), salt and pepper. Mix well and fill the jalapeños with the seasoned tuna.
  • 3 To serve, spoon a little tomatillo salsa onto a dish and place the filled jalapeño on top. Garnish with a few carrot pieces from the canned jalapeños. This is a picante appetizer, but the combination of sabores will create a sensational party for the palate.
