Created By: StarKist
1 pouch (11 oz.) StarKist® Chunk Light Tuna in Water
6 peppers, red and green
1 cup chopped onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. Olive Oil
½ tsp. oregano
1 tsp. parsley
1 - ¼ cups cooked brown rice
Salt and pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Cut tops (~1/3) off the peppers and clean out the interiors. Cut the stem from the top of the pepper (discard the stem) and cut the remaining pepper from the top into small dices. Hold the bottom 2/3 of each pepper for stuffing.
Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions, garlic and diced pepper and cook until onions and peppers are soft, about 5 minutes. Add oregano, parsley, salt and pepper, tuna and rice. Mix to blend well.
Stuff peppers with mixture. Place in 8 x8 square baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Top with cheese and bake for 5 additional minutes to melt the cheese.
