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.

Ingredients

  • 1 - 5 ozs canned tuna in water, drained
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 large carrots, finely diced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • 6 large jalapeño peppers, rinsed
  • 6 slices queso fresco, approximately 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches

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.
