Tuna-Stuffed Piquillo Peppers
I had some leftover whole piquillo peppers so I made these for a light, summer supper last night. I used Roland brand whole piquillo peppers, purchased from the Largest-River-In-South-America site that begins with an “A” . I didn't measure anything, but here’s what I put in it:
Whole piquillo peppers, drained and patted dry with paper towels
2 cans olive-oil packed tuna, drained & flaked
About ˝ cup marinated artichoke hearts, diced
1 shallot, minced (I wanted to use green onions, but didn’t have any)
About Ľ cup minced parsley
Enough mayonnaise to bind together the mixture
Juice from ˝ lemon
2 tsp. smoked Spanish paprika (mild, but hot would be good, too)
˝ tsp. ground cumin
Salt & pepper to taste
Mix everything together and stuff the tuna mixture into the piquillo peppers with a small spoon.
