Recipe by: Fancy Shanty

Prep Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 3 servings

Ingredients

2 (5 oz.) cans Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Albacore Tuna with Jalapeños & Olive Oil, drained
1 cup of red bell pepper, chopped
7 jalapeños split in half and seeded
1 package of bacon
2 ½ tablespoons of mayonnaise
1 ½ tablespoons of minced garlic
2 teaspoons of cilantro, dried
½ teaspoon of ground cumin


Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. If you have a baking rack we recommend using it for best results.

In a small mixing bowl, stir together red bell pepper, mayo, garlic, cilantro, and cumin. Stir until mix reaches an equal consistency. Add tuna and fold into mix.

After the jalapeños have been halved and seeded, stuff them with the tuna mix.

Wrap each stuffed jalapeño with a slice of bacon. Secure the bacon in place with a toothpick and place on baking rack.

Bake in heated oven for 30 minutes, or until bacon reaches a cooked and crispy consistency. (If you are looking for extra crisp, switch oven to broil for the last 2-3 minutes)

Serve immediately.
