- 3 – 2.5oz pouches Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Gourmet Flavors Albacore Tuna with Jalapenos & Olive Oil
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 3/8 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tsp dried cilantro
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
- 6 jalapenos, halved lengthwise and seeded
- 12 slices of bacon
- Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (best for clean-up) or a silicone baking mat. Place a baking rack on top of the baking sheet. Set aside.
- In a small bowl combine tuna, mayonnaise, cumin, cilantro, garlic, and bell pepper. Stir to combine and set aside.
- Meanwhile, if not already done, slice six jalapenos length wise and remove the ribs and seed. Wear disposable gloves to protect your hands from the oil in the peppers.
- Place sliced and seeded jalapenos on the wire rack and stuff with tuna mixture.
- Wrap each stuffed jalapeno with a slice of bacon, and secure with a toothpick.
- Bake for 25-30minutes, on until bacon is thoroughly cooked and crisp. Turn the oven to broil for the last-minute or two to get things extra crispy. Serve immediately. Cover leftovers and keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
